Why Join an Ensemble?

WCMS has ensembles and bands to fit a wide range of ages, interests, and ability levels. Whether you simply like the idea of playing or singing with fellow musicians, want to practice in a supportive group, or are ready to take your music to the next level, we will help you find a group that fits.

Playing in an ensemble or band helps participants develop important instrumental and voice skills, such as:

  • Ensemble cueing
  • Group intonation
  • Rhythmic interaction
  • Leadership and listening skills

Participation in an ensemble also improves a student's ability to perform in solo recitals or large ensemble settings such as school bands, orchestras, and a cappella groups. No matter what your musical goals, please join us!
