Music Groups 2019-2020

DMA is thrilled to offer performance groups to enhance the music education of its students. Not only will young musicians improve their abilities, they will have the opportunity to implement the skills they have learned during private lessons into a performance setting.  Playing in a group offers the added benefits of teamwork, social interaction, and an accountability to the group that will keep them motivated to practice. Memories and friendships will be made as groups work together towards a common goal, culminating in a live music performance.
