Classical String Technique – Cello Fall Semester, Violin Spring Semester
For new musicians. This class is the first step in a lifelong rewarding journey of music and art. Students receive in-person classes twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday) and tracked practice session at home (Monday and Wednesday). Instructors and assistants help each student learn the fundamentals of their string instrument, learn efficient practice techniques, and introduce students to playing together in ensemble. At the end of the semester, students perform in a class recital. After 1 semester, students are ready to join the Camerata Ensemble orchestra.
Camerata Ensemble – Full String Orchestra (Ongoing)
For Instrumental Technique graduates and students with string experience. Students rehearse twice per week in a full orchestra including violins, violas, and cellos (Tuesday and Thursday). Students study complex polyphonic music, develop the ability to follow a conductor, and work as a team all while they learn the nuances of expression, intonation, articulation, and begin to tackle orchestral repertoire together. Pieces start as simple 4-part orchestrations and finish with standard repertoire, at which point students are ready to join advanced orchestras.
Our program is designed to be very budget friendly for families that are just beginning their musical journey.
Classical String Technique – $440 Per Semester
Camerata Ensemble – $400 Per Semester
