What's the difference between a band and an ensemble?
Traditionally ensembles are comprised of same or mixed groups of classically based instruments such as violin, viola, cello, classical guitar, flute, piano, etc.
Bands, on the other hand, are usually made up of various combinations of drums, bass guitar, guitar, saxophone, keyboard and vocals. Our students come together to form all sorts of band styles from jazz to swing and rock.
Why should I join a band?
- Playing in a band, or an ensemble, needs team works and pre-rehearsal practice. When children play in both, they have individual responsibilities but also share the experience of making music with the other players.
- Playing in a band, or an ensemble, requires student to listen and accommodate to others’ playing and carrying out own part at the same time. In other words, multitasking. It is an ear, mind and focus training for students who are so accustomed in playing solo.
