Chamber Music Initiative:

Our chamber music initiative is open to any student grade 6-12, including pianists. Students will be placed in small ensembles of between 3 and 8 students of similar age and ability. 

Students will rehearse for one hour each week with a designated coach, building to a final performance at the end of each semester. Advanced students will also receive other opportunities to perform in the community!

Individual groups meet at various times.

Musical Skills and Knowledge Course:

Students will be placed in one of three levels after taking a music theory placement exam. Most weeks will consist of basic aural skills, music theory, and music history, with special events and guest speakers dispersed throughout the year. 

Special sessions will also include professional skills, including resume building, recording for auditions, and building better practicing habits. There is no outside work for the course, but students are expected to be engaged and participate when in class. The most advanced class is focused specifically on preparing advanced high school students to study music in college.

Meets Sunday afternoons.
