Upcoming Performances by New Groove Teachers

At New Groove, we value that our private music teachers are active performers of their craft! This is why we often call our teachers, “teaching artists.” Teaching artists use their skills as an artist when teaching others, sharing creative processes for students to learn from. Learning from passionate teachers who also know what it’s like to perform in today’s world is an irreplaceable quality of a great private music teacher!

3 reasons why having a performing teacher benefits students in their private music lessons:

  1. Helps students learn by example. Seeing teachers perform as part of their life and career gives students an example for their own lives.
  2. Know the tools of a modern musician. Active performers (versus those who stopped performing long ago) know what it takes now to be a successful musician.
  3. Learn from a teacher with a passion for sharing their music with others. We believe that sharing music with others is one of the greatest joys it has to offer, whether that be with peers, friends, or an audience of hundreds!

Below are some upcoming performance to check out from our amazing teachers!

I will also be doing some of my original compositions. I look forward most to playing the music here in which I’ve spent writing over the semester. A big aspect of my Masters degree has been working toward bettering my compositional/arranging skills cultivating my own voice, figuring out what l personally love harmonically, melodically, and rhythmically. Studying this with my teachers has truly molded my perception of music into something truly unique I believe these past two years!”
