How to practice individually and rehearse together,
How to communicate with other musicians,
Making progress together with your colleagues by inspiring each other,
Sharing the pleasure of finding some truth in music?
EVERY student will have an opportunity to play a concerto with orchestra, and selected students will appear in a concerto concert as soloists. Playing a concerto with orchestra is an extremely valuable experience, but unfortunately, even conservatory students hardly get a chance.
Following the concerto week, we will continue with the chamber music program. Music education today tends to focus on individual instrumental technique. While polishing your skills by practicing alone is essential for a musical career, chamber music experience opens up a new avenue for exploration. All students will have a chamber music group WITH a faculty member. Making music and performing together with artists becomes a tremendous experience for each student.
Throughout the course, we will provide masterclasses for each instrument, chamber music coachings, and private lessons. The leaders include guest artists from Boston Symphony Orchestra, and faculty members from New England Conservatory, The Boston Conservatory and Boston University.
