Quartet101: An Introduction to Playing Chamber Music

Monday, Wednesday, Friday   11:00am  July 19 – July 23, 2021
55 minutes

Chamber Music | Precollege

Join Molly Sharp, Principal Violist of the RSO, for a one-week introduction to playing chamber music. The course, which will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, is designed to teach you the basic skills and techniques needed to play in a string quartet (bassists are welcome, too!). We will be working on leading and cueing, matching bow strokes and dynamics, honing your rhythmic skills, and exploring different sounds on your instrument to portray different emotions. Although this class is online, it will be very interactive as we explore the skills needed for any chamber music setting for strings, and by extension, orchestra.

(includes a $5 book fee)
