CHAMBER MUSIC FOR KIDS:
For intermediate string, flute, and piano students who are reading music, we offer chamber music sessions during the academic year. Interested students must speak with the Director to determine eligibility. Repertoire is carefully selected to both challenge and inspire young players and each session is coached by one of our faculty members. Student groups perform at our school and in the community at various venues.
During the summer months, we offer week-long camps with daily professional coaching and practice time. The daily schedule includes a 45-minute coaching session, a rotating class of composition, improvisation, music history, recording and practice strategies, and a short time for independent or guided practice. Our week culminates with an informal performance and/or a neighborhood outreach performance.
SUNDAY PROGRAM FOR ADVANCED STUDENTS:
Enrollment in our Sunday Program for serious string students in Book 4 and above is by teacher recommendation and includes intensive chamber music and musicianship classes along with both formal and informal performances throughout the year.
CHAMBER MUSIC FOR ADULTS:
We offer 5-week or 10-week courses for semi-professional and amateur musicians interested in making music together. Each session includes 45 minutes of rehearsal and 45 minutes of coaching by Silver Music faculty and guest musicians. Repertoire will be carefully selected based on the players’ ability and interest. Ensembles will perform at the end of the semester in an informal recital open to friends and family. Learn more by clicking here!
