InSight, the junior division of AFS, focuses on building the basic skills needed to play chamber music. It is open to young players who are learning to read music, and who already have some command of their instruments, typically ages 9 through 12, Suzuki books 2-4.
InSight helps students to read music better, to gain confidence in their ability to play with others, and to work together to make beautiful music. Skills and repertoire classes, theory and music-reading games, and Dalcroze Eurythmics-based movement classes will help each child improve his personal musical skills.
InSight's emphasis on service to the Giver of music, focuses the efforts of the young students. Sharing music in performance with elderly and less-privileged audiences teaches our students to be grateful for the ability to make music, and for the privilege of bringing joy to others.
Please note: each InSight student age 9 or under must have a parent or responsible adult attending InSight events along with him.
