Chamber Music

The study of chamber music allows students to work together through focused activity and shared goals, giving each member a chance to develop listening skills, musical sensitivity, and group dynamics. Students will participate in a structured high-level chamber ensemble where they will be coached weekly by a member of our Gifted Music School faculty, as well as a weekly rehearsal. Chamber music develops valuable ensemble skills while fostering camaraderie and friendship. Groups are placed based on skill level and age.

Attendance Policy

Students are permitted one (1) absence per semester. The consistent presence of all ensemble members is essential to everyone’s learning experience.
 

Weekly Assignments & Preparation

Students need to arrive with their own part prepared, with the help of the private instructor if necessary. Students also should be familiar with the other ensemble parts, studying the full score (provided along with individual part by the coach). It is essential that students attend consistently and work on their part on a regular basis, as well as listen to recordings (when available) of the piece.

 

Performances

The spring semester will provide two performance opportunities, a Chamber Music Concert on Wednesday May 10th at 7:00 p.m. and Chamberpalooza on Saturday May 20th, time TBA.
