Designed for individuals who can read rhythm accurately, shift fluently, play in 1st -3rd positions, and do basic sight-reading in treble clef.
Two 1 ½ hour class sessions every day M –F (9-10:30 and 4-5:30) = 17 hrs instruction during the course of one week plus 2 hrs/day use of a private practice studio.
Possible performance opportunities.
The violin and viola parts of three contrasting movements of classical string quartets will be played and studied in depth. Sources for scores and particular movements to be studied will be available two months before the week of the workshop and participants will be expected to have done enough work on these parts prior to the workshop to be able to play them with others without too much stopping for an individual’s issues.
