Join us as we kick off this new one-week, only, all-day summer enrichment program for the string player who has 1 to 5 years’ experience playing their instrument.
This program is open to students who play violin, viola, cello, and upright bass.
Students supply their own instruments for the program. If a student is in need of an instrument for the week, please contact K-12 Strings Director Emily Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on short-term instrument rentals.
This week includes:
Semi- or Private lessons: Personalized lessons with a semi- or private teacher, focusing on skill development and musical understanding.
Daily group classes focus on playing as an ensemble, incorporating games, and teamwork activities.
These Fiddling workshops focus on traditional American and Celtic folk music, and the string techniques used to play in a non-classical style.
Rhythm and Movement
In these classes, the focus is on our natural instrument: your own body. Feel the rhythm and move to the beat, while concentrating on the corporal integration of the groove.
Music literacy is developed through basic theoretical concepts. Note reading and rhythmic notation are among the skills covered in these classes.
The Internet is full of inspiring videos of string players taking their music to new heights. Discover the cutting edge of string playing through a well-curated video playlist.
Integrating the concepts learned in the other camp classes, let your music inspire your art, and your art inspire your music!
Faculty and guest artists perform throughout the week, culminating with a student recital at the end of our week together.
