Playing chamber music is not only deeply satisfying musically, it instills the value of being well prepared, so you can contribute fully as a strong member of a musical team. Participation in chamber music also develops listening skills to a very high level, because the give and take between parts requires each player to hear the totality of the music beyond their own part. Our chamber music program is open to intermediate and advanced students who are ready for the challenge of playing one instrument on a part and are eager to explore the rich chamber music repertoire. Intermediate guidelines: pianists - at least Sonatina level with strong sight-reading skills; Strings - Suzuki Book 4 and up; Winds and Brass - teacher and Director recommendation.
