CHAMBER MUSIC SATURDAYS
Chamber music is written for a small group of instruments and offers opportunities for musical growth that large ensembles cannot. Unlike large ensembles, a chamber group is not led by a conductor but is more of a democracy where the musicians collaborate to make musical decisions together. Chamber music allows developing players to work on skills such as intonation, communication, and listening skills, all in a fun and collaborative setting. Chamber ensemble participation, in addition to private lessons and band/orchestra playing, help students become complete and well-rounded musicians.
MIXED WIND CHAMBER MUSIC
Students will be placed in groups based on level and will explore repertoire written for mixed wind ensembles, including woodwind quintets, quartets, and trios. Students will learn about important aspects of playing in a group including intonation, blending, rhythm, listening, and playing independent parts within a group. Available for all wind instruments including flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, French horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium & tuba as well as some string instruments depending on enrollment. Semester culminates in a recital at the end of January.
Saturday Mornings from 9:00-1:00 from Dec 22, 2018 through Jan 26, 2019. Students will be divided into groups based on compatibility of level, instrumentations and age. Sign up early because this program can get filled quickly! Please see enrollment form below for dates and rates.
