Attention violin, viola, and cello players!
In this performance ensemble we will explore a varied musical repertoire from classical to folk, pop, and world music. Students will learn new musical concepts, practical music theory, and improvisational technique. We will learn to play like a pro while having a lot of fun!
If you’ve had some experience playing your instrument in an ensemble and you’re looking for an opportunity to play in an ensemble, this group’s for you!
Ages 12 and up
Monthly Saturday performance class
Prerequisites: Students must have a good foundation on their instrument, be able to read music, and have played in a musical ensemble before. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will meet with you for a consultation.
