REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN - Early Bird Deadline - February 15
COURSES FOR ALL STRINGS STUDENTS
All string players will be placed in an orchestra. Please see the Orchestra tab on this website for more specific details.
All string players will have one class per day devoted to sectionals. Each individual section will meet in small groups to work with a coach on different aspects of the orchestra music.
Components of Music
Students in the Mozart Music Makers will participate in this fun movement-oriented class. The objectives will emphasize basic aspects of rhythm, pitch, note reading, ensemble and performance skills.
Theory and related Music Topics
Students in the Haydn Strings group will have a fun theory class each day in which they will learn a variety of different structural aspects of music: pitch, rhythm, form, ear training, and dictation
This group is for newer, less experienced players as well as students who have studied for several years and have been in elementary level orchestras. Students in this orchestra should have a minimum of one year of musical instruction. More experienced players receive leadership experience. The students will acquire reading and ensemble skills and appropriate repertoire will be mastered.
