  • Students learn valuable cooperative skills by participating in a chamber ensemble.

  • The ensemble will be enjoyable and educational and allow the participants to experience music in a different way than they can in band or orchestra.

  • Each student is an important member of the ensemble and brings to it both individual strengths and weaknesses.

  • Each student will be encouraged to share strengths and improve weaknesses.

  • Students accept and appreciate critical analysis when it is presented in a constructive way, and learn to understand its importance to the final product.

  • Students gain self-confidence when they support the group by playing their part well.

  • Students will improve musical skills and build self-confidence by working together in a supportive way.

  • Working together by listening to each other's ideas is important to the cohesiveness of the group and the quality of the final product.

  • Students learn the cooperative ensemble skills necessary to perform successfully.

  • All parts of the music are important to form a complete ensemble.

  • Each student will play a variety of "parts" and be offered the possibility of playing the piccolo, C, alto, and bass flutes.

  • Experiencing ensembles of various sizes is important to refining and developing skills. (For example, self-directing leads to a better understanding of ensemble skills and also improves listening skills.)

  • Music is an avenue of expression and communication.

  • Sharing music with the community is an important goal of the preparation process.

  • Music will be shared in public community performances, and also taken to those community residents who are not able to travel to the public performances.

  • Students will be encouraged to augment their education by participating in music workshops of different types.

  • Community cooperation will be promoted by encouraging membership of students from many different schools.
