In a world where online lessons and rote instrumental programs abound, there is no shortage of ways to learn to play music. But why do so many students stop playing their instrument when they're done with lessons? What's missing in music education?
At Vibe, we've learned that the more ways our students experience music, the deeper they connect with it, and the more often they reach their potential as musicians. That's why our academy offers a multitude of diverse, exciting ways for our students to engage in music.
Here are a few of the ways that our students get the full experience of music here at Vibe:
Though practice makes perfect, at Vibe we believe the richest musical experiences take place on the bandstand, not in a class or a practice room. Our curriculums are designed around helping students foster a love of performing and to be great at it.
There are few musical accomplishments more fulfilling and educational than experiencing your own music performed. Our students are encouraged and assisted in the process of composing and arranging the music that comes from their own heads.
Playing in a Band
What great musician never played in an ensemble? The growth that happens within a student while playing in a band is priceless to their development as a musician. Soon, Vibe students will have the unique opportunity to join forces and perform with like-minded musicians in our individually tailored ensembles.
Throughout the year, we bring in professional musicians to perform and teach at our Vibe Community Events. In these events, our guests perform with our instructors and students, teach on musical concepts, and share stories and life experiences.
Seeing how it's done
Several times a year, Vibe will organize and promote group outings to some of Indianapolis' best music performances. See what's next on the calendar.
