Winds and Brass Youth Chamber Music Intensive

Program Outline

For motivated students keen to explore the world of chamber music, this program will group students together into small chamber groups based on age, instrumentation and ability. Students will receive a 1-hour coaching and 30-minute masterclass each week, with the opportunity to perform in masterclass with their ensemble at least once per session, and final celebratory performance. Groups will be determined in advance of the start date and music will be distributed so students can come prepared to the first coaching.
