Rehearsals may also include time for individual instruction, sectionals, and small ensembles. Music selected both for rehearsal and performance represents a wide variety of musical styles and cultural/historical backgrounds, further providing for the development of musical knowledge, as well as individual and ensemble technical skills. Private instrument study is strongly encouraged.
