Calvin Dyck, violinJune 29- July 2: Violin (3 days, no class on July 1st)

The Virtual Music Camp (Violin Masterclasses) will feature on-line coaching with Calvin Dyck. Participants will be invited to perform a piece of their choosing. In addition, all participants will be asked to prepare 3 pieces chosen by Calvin.

The classes will also address a variety of topics from specific violin and bow technique, (such as vibrato, shifting, tone, detaché, spiccatto, sautillé, legato, pizzicatto, col legno, brush stroke, etc.) to scales, practice strategies, key interpretive principles, and how to achieve a professional sound.

Calvin is open to suggestions for specific topics and would like to help each student identify key areas to work on in their violin technique.

Applicants will be asked to submit a video of themselves playing – so Calvin can prepare some specific suggestions for each student.

Classes are open to RCM Levels 5 – ARCT (or equivalent). Ages 12 and up. $50
