Five private lessons; use of private practice studio two hours daily; daily group classes.
The Violin/Viola Workshops began during the 1997 season under the same basic precept as the original piano and cello programs: an intensive practice/study vacation for busy adult amateurs (who rarely have this kind of time to devote to their instrument during the rest of the year) in a breathtakingly beautiful setting on the Maine coast. We’re adding more weeks to our string programs, with the goal of offering expanded opportunities for ensemble to all those participants who want this.
Adult violinists/violists at any level are welcome. An absolute beginner with no previous instruction would be encouraged to attend more than one week.
Coached ensembles are encouraged, not just among the violinists and violists, but also with the overlapping programs (piano and/or flute, clarinet, guitar, and cello). Faculty sets up coaching sessions for ensembles according to student schedules. Late afternoons are given over to group rehearsals.
Evening activities involve a social (Mondays), a faculty concert (Wednesdays) and performance classes (Thursdays and Fridays) for those who wish to participate.
There is no audition and no minimum skill level. The premise is: Come as you are to enjoy the study, the work and the beauty of our historic fishing village.
