Single Instrument Ensembles

If you are having individual lessons in either guitar, flute or recorder we recommend you also enrol in the single instrument ensemble to increase your playing ability in a group context and meet other music students.

There are also more opportunities to perform publicly as part of an ensemble at one of our Performance Days or scheduled events.

Guitar Ensemble is a wonderful supplement to private guitar lessons and is encouraged for all students.

The size of the ensemble can vary from year to year, but is usually a group of about 8 to 12 guitarists of mixed ages (mostly high school aged) and abilities, providing students with the opportunity to learn to read music and understand the tools a guitarist needs to be able to play a variety of styles.Rehearsing as a group, the students will feel supported and encouraged and will develop a positive outlook on their guitar playing ability.

Guitar Ensemble performs regularly throughout the year at WollCon Performance Days, community events and Eisteddfods.

Mel Wishart

Small group lessons provide a motivating environment to learn music. They encourage teamwork, communication skills, and offer an authentic and empowering environment that can boost confidence and reduce stage fright.

Students will learn to read music at a steady pace but are also encouraged to explore improvisation, as well as taking part in small ensembles.

Lessons are tailor made to explore student’s individual interests, whilst progressively developing their skillset through an established curriculum with each other. “Classical to Whimsical” is Mel’s motto.
