Ensemble rehearsals, improvisation, team building exercises, and music history workshops will be incorporated into the daily schedule. This course is designed for intermediate to advanced students who have a minimum of two years private instruction.
Following lunch, students delve into the colorful world of improvisation, jazz, and the blues. Activities will include improvisation games, an original group composition, and team jazz arrangement of popular melodies. The week will end with a performance of standard and original tunes.
Focusing on the rich tradition of classical chamber music, students will study a variety of repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary. Students will be assigned to level-appropriate groups to rehearse and perform at the week’s end.
