All students who are involved in Instrumental Duo, regardless of group placement, should register for this course. Violinist-pianist partners study specific works from the violin-sonata literature, two duos sharing a one-hour lesson in workshop format. Each pair performs for their colleagues and in turn observes the others' instruction, scores in hand. Intensive study of technical as well as interpretive aspects of each sonata is the focus. Performance presence and refinement of ensemble playing, discussion and hearing of concepts are encouraged. Open to upper-intermediate to advanced players.
Auditions are held in September. To schedule an audition, contact the Preparatory School office at (617)585-1160. Please note that you must be registered for this course before your audition. While we make every effort to place everyone who auditions if we are unable to place you we will issue a full tuition refund for this course.
Instrumental Duo coachings are held in various locations at the NEC main campus.
