Full Ensemble Rehearsals

Full ensemble rehearsals are taught in a large group setting using the full complement of instruments for band or orchestra. This class setting is structured to help a large group of students develop specific ensemble skills and musicianship as a whole entity. They are designed to teach students the skills necessary to perform together as an ensemble.
