This eight-day program is designed to allow students to immerse themselves in all aspects of music including two private lessons, chamber ensembles, music theory and ear-training, music history and appreciation, performance practice, string, large ensembles. The program will conclude with a performance on Wednesday afternoon, July 3.
Chamber Ensembles give students the opportunity to explore great works of music under the guidance of a master teacher in an intimate setting where each student is challenged to broaden their musical perspectives, contribute fully, and inspire and be inspired by the other ensemble members. Students are placed in chamber ensembles based upon their skill level; chamber ensembles meet every day.
Students are placed with a teacher for two 50-minute Private Lessons during the program; in each lesson, a master teacher will work with each student on their solo repertoire as well as the literature being rehearsed in chamber ensembles.
Music Theory and Ear-Training Classes will help students develop a deeper theoretical knowledge of music and dramatically improve their performance skills. Students will be placed in classes based upon their skills as determined by a simple placement test.
Music History and Appreciation Classes expand students’ musical and historical knowledge about music and composers.
Performance Practice Class will give each student the opportunity to share a work from their repertoire, discuss the technical and stylistic challenges of their music, and improve their solo performance skills.
Each day also includes snack breaks, a lunch break (students need to
bring a bag lunch), and recreation time.
