Advantages of Performing Groups


The students improve so rapidly because they attend more classes. They have a flat rate of tuition under which they can take unlimited classes. There is a wide gap in abilities between the non-performing students and the performing groups. The students don’t necessarily come any more days, but stay longer. They are associating with other committed students and that pushes up the level. Performing is a lot of fun, and the students really enjoy both that and competing. Most of all, besides the talent that they are learning, is the confidence they gain and the ability to work together with their team.
