Students who enroll in Crescendo Detroit’s Instrumental Music Program will develop a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music including music theory and understanding musical notation, vocabulary and symbols. The students will acquire this solid foundation in music through the performance in a bucket band. Students in the beginning course who master the fundamentals will also be allowed to experiment with drums, bass guitar, and keyboard. Students will have regular performances throughout this first session and students will acquire the skills, abilities, understandings and attitudes necessary to express themselves musically as individuals and as members of an ensemble.
