What are C3 Groups?

C3 Groups are small, mixed instrument and vocal ensembles for advancing students ages 8-18. Groups consist of 4—7 members, cater to a variety of instrumentation, ages, and skill levels—and are very beneficial for musicians looking to gain more collaboration and performance experience.

Throughout the session, students work together with their C3 coach and rehearse their own musical arrangements/original compositions. C3 Groups name their ensemble and plan and develop their performance from start to finish. The ultimate goal is that each member becomes a more equipped and well-rounded musician in a fun collaborative environment. Groups perform their music of choice for their family, friends, and other C3 Groups at a showcase concert at the end of the session.

Who Can Join?

Current Expressions students ages 8-18 may join a C3 Group after completing Level 4 or higher in our Black Belt Achievement Program. Students not currently enrolled at Expressions are welcome to join a C3 Group upon passing a private audition in their chosen instrument.

Who Leads the C3 Groups?

C3 Coaches are Expressions instructors, experienced not only in music education, but also, and importantly, with group performance. Lots of work and preparation goes into arranging songs for a group of performers, a variety of instruments, and a

slight range of skill levels. We’ve found that instructors experienced both at teaching music and maintaining a successful performing career make great candidates for C3 Coaching.

What Kind of Music is Chosen?

C3 Groups have chosen a wide variety of music, from well-known hits to hidden gems, to mash-ups, to original compositions. Groups always decide together what they would like to perform, and arrangements are always designed to cater to each member’s strengths and unique skill set.

How Often Does the Group Meet?

C3 Groups meet for 75 minute rehearsals every week throughout each 4-month session. Two sessions are offered each year:

Winter (January-April) Fall (September-December)

How Much Does C3 Cost?

The rate for C3 is $25/class

Aside from covering the rehearsal time with a professional instructor, this fee also covers all materials, a binder filled with all the necessary sheet music/handouts for the session, and the showcase concert at the end of the session including free admission for as many family and friends as each C3 member would like to invite!
