Chamber Music Experience
Chamber music is defined as music played in a chamber (read: room). Whereas you couldn’t fit an entire symphony orchestra into someone’s living room, a classy restaurant, or a wedding venue, smaller groups of musicians have provided entertainment at special events for hundreds of years, and there is a wide body of sheet music literature for numerous musical combinations at numerous levels. Some examples are a wind quintet, a string quartet, or a jazz combo.
I reached out to my professional music colleagues as well as college music majors to put together a fun and education program that will benefit musicians of all performance areas and abilities this fall. Students will have the chance to meet in groups of 3-5 to learn music and perform together, with both virtual* and in-person options for weekly rehearsal and coaching sessions.
Whether your children sing, play piano, bassoon, rock guitar, or cello, I will group students according to ability and instrumentation. If your children are beginner, intermediate, or advanced musicians, we have a place for them. If your children have NEVER played an instrument before but want to learn, we have a place for them.
We plan to offer a variety of musical experiences, including not only traditional “classical” music, but world music, jazz, barbershop, and movie soundtracks (to name just a few).
There will be a $100 registration fee per term to allow us to purchase materials and a coaching fee of $45 per month. Limited scholarships are available. We host fun and knowledgeable guest experts periodically to help students learn more about music and how to develop authentic musical interpretations.

*For the virtual option, we will meet for weekly coaching sessions online and as the term progresses, we (parents) will make a decision whether to perform online by having each student record his/her part and splice videos together, or whether to move to wards in-person sessions and performances as the situation progresses
