Strings and Things: Ensemble Course
for Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass
Course No. 3052
Sorry – this course is fully booked!
Specifically designed for amateur string players who are searching for the opportunity to experience intensive and detailed rehearsal on string repertoire; it affords the luxury of sufficient rehearsal time to attain one’s best possible standard of playing. Sight reading will not be required as all music is sent out in advance.
This course provides the chance to work specifically on all aspects of rehearsal technique. Attention will be given to working in detail with a specialist string coach on issues such as ensemble, articulation, rhythm, intonation and style. Seating will be rotated in order to give everyone the chance to understand the different roles in ensemble playing. The chosen repertoire will be small and varied. Because of the necessity of creating a balanced group acceptance on this course will be subject to some selection.
