STRING & SING

For Strings; a basic level of music reading and a minimum 2 years of study. No prerequisite for singing.

July 2 – 7, 2018

The first few years of a young musician’s instruction can be lonely ones as they acquire the skills to join an ensemble.   Register soon to experience the joy of playing and singing with your friends and gain the confidence to continue when fall rolls around.

String Mornings

In the mornings, string students will focus on bow techniques, rhythmic awareness, sight reading, and ear training while working together in a friendly and fun atmosphere.

Repertoire is chosen to include a wide variety of styles that appeal to players ranging in age from 8 to 12. They will learn and/or improve their ensemble playing, bow technique, rhythmic awareness within the ensemble, and note reading.

Students will also tap into their creative side by creating original music together! They will learn about singing techniques, reading music, and good musical habits. A recital on the last day will showcase the incredible strides that these young musicians have made in just six days.

Sing Afternoons

If I cannot fly, let me sing. ~ Stephen Sondheim

The afternoons will feature programming for the student’s first instrument, the voice. Students will experience games, songs and activities aimed at increasing their knowledge of how the voice works and their ability to focus their energy into this versatile instrument as they sing together in a choir.

There is an option to take only the Strings portion of the program, or the Singing portion of the program – see below for details.

STRING & SING SCHEDULE
