About This Activity

Description

Chamber Music Ensembles
Thursdays 7:00-8:00 pm OR 8:00-9:00 pm, 15 weeks
February 14 - May 30, 2019
Tuition: $457.50 + $10 music fee
Chamber music is one of the most essential and rewarding experiences for a well-rounded musical education. Chamber ensembles have 3-5 members and perform music without a conductor. Our student ensembles will have a weekly coaching with a professional chamber coach. Student musicians will build skills such as group pulse, communication, developing a blended ensemble sound, and creating an emotionally expressive performance. The semester of study will culminate in a public performance on George Mason University's Fairfax campus.
Currently available for Strings and Piano students currently enrolled for private lessons at Mason CommunityArts Academy or another studio.
Minimum Level Requirement for String Students: ASTA grade level 3/Suzuki Book 3. Must be able to play 2 octave scales and read music with ease.
Audition materials are required!*
Auditions should be recorded on video and uploaded as Unlisted to YouTube, then both the link and the letter of recommendation should be emailed to the Chamber Coordinator, Claire Allen, at callen24@gmu.edu by January 18, 2019. Include the following:

  • Letter of Recommendation from Private Instructor
  • 1 major scale of choice (2 or 3 octaves)
  • 1 melodic minor scale of choice (2 or 3 octaves)
  • Solo piece under 5 minutes for String players, if playing a concerto or sonata, the exposition is enough (no accompaniment needed).
