This class is an opportunity for string players of all ages and skill levels to build ensemble playing skills in a fun and supportive group setting. We will begin each class with scales and warm-up activities that encourage listening across the ensemble and can be incorporated into players’ own daily practice routines. We will then learn a canon, round, or song by ear and experiment with creative ways to play these selections in an informal jam setting. We will devote the rest of class time to working on a written-out multi-part ensemble piece.
Musical selections will be sent out a week in advance so that participants can prepare for the class. Repertoire will be drawn from many genres and can be tailored to the interests of the participants. Participants will sign up on a monthly basis. Regular attendance is encouraged but not required.
