Basic Strings is a one-week camp for violin, viola, cello, and bass for students who have never played an instrument or are interested in gaining ensemble experience. This camp will offer a good introduction for students planning to take a strings class at their school in the fall. Students who have played in elementary strings and looking for additional coaching will benefit from this camp’s highly personalized instruction. Students will work both in small groups, as well as in a large ensemble setting. They will gain exposure to a wide array of music genres from classical composers such as Mozart and Haydn to fiddle tunes and folk melodies from Celtic culture, the Middle East, and the American South. This camp is a great way to prepare for school orchestras and other, more advanced, chamber groups.
Basic Strings is the 1st of 2 summer camps offer by The Shedd Institute as a part of its 2017 Chamber Strings Institute. Read more...
