Music Inspiration Series
Our Music Inspiration Series offers virtual group instruction for both instrumental and vocal performance, as well as music literacy development. This series is a superb entry to music learning and an enriching supplement to one’s private instruction.
In our virtual classroom, we incorporate our core values of music education by ensuring that students develop collaboration, communication, creativity, confidence, and critical thinking skills in an ensemble setting. Students will learn the intricacies by listening to each other as peers and practicing together as a collaborative ensemble.
At the end of each course, we offer a virtual performance opportunity as we believe the best way for students to gain musical proficiency is through performance-based music education.
These lessons are ideal for aspiring musicians or anyone looking for a creative, exciting musical challenge.
After the completion of their first course, students have the option to study with WeMusic teaching artists privately through the Rising Artist Program or continue on with group instruction at a more advanced level.
