Chamber Music Ensembles
Piano Group Classes
A La Carte Option
For adult cellists who are currently studying
or who have previous playing experience, this weekly class will include work on
technique as well as cello choir ensemble pieces. Participants will also have
the option to practice performing solo repertoire in a supportive setting and
to receive constructive feedback.
The piano can often be an individual
instrument, but music is meant to be a shared endeavor! For adults who play
piano (currently taking lessons or not), this class will cover various
piano-related topics, provide an opportunity to perform for each other, and
provide an opportunity to play with others – with both 4-hand music and
collaborating with other instruments and voice.
Piano Studio Class (Grades 1-5)
For students already enrolled in private piano
lessons, these classes are an opportunity to learn about music and piano with
other students your age. This class will cover music theory, music history, and
aural skills, as well as practice performing and ensemble playing.
Group Piano for Young Beginners
This class is for students interested in piano,
but not quite ready for individual lessons. Students will be introduced to
basic musical concepts, an introduction to the keyboard, and some basic
technique/playing. Students will spend time both at the keyboard and doing
group activities and other activities away from the keyboard. This class’s goal
is to help younger students learn fundamentals in a group setting before they
begin private instruction.
Piano Performance Workshops
An informal setting in which students can
practice performing for their peers as well as learning how to be critical
listeners. There will be feedback from the teacher (like a mini master class)
and interaction with all students. Music does not have to be memorized, though
it is preferred.
