BRING STEPHEN TO YOUR SCHOOL
This class will develop string musicians in a small ensemble, with one player to a part, using hip-hop arrangements.
WHAT WILL YOU GET OUT OF THIS CLASS?
Collaboration: Chamber Music involves working together equally, sharing opinions and striving to come together to make something beautiful. Each individual voice is important, and so is the collaboration of the voices together.
Responsibility: When there is only one student to a part, there is no ability to hide and each student must be responsible for learning his or her music! With such a small ensemble, attendance and punctuality also become very important; students must be responsible for regular, faithful attendance and being on time for rehearsals and/or coachings.
Intonation: In small ensembles, students must focus and learn the skill of playing in tune.
Performance Skills: The ability to perform in front of an audience is another skill that is honed in chamber music. Control of performance nerves translates to auditions, interviews, presentations, and any type of public speaking.
Hip-Hop Motivates!: Spending time with friends and playing music that students love!
