Summer Piano Trio Workshop
Summer Chamber Music 2012
Session 1: July 16-20, 2012 (Recital: Friday, July 20)
Session 2: August 6-10, 2012 (Recital, Friday August 10)
(Students may enroll in one or more sessions.)
Times: One-hour coaching sessions will be scheduled between 8 am and 12:30 pm at Kalo Latu’s piano studio. Each group will practice together on their own for 1-1.5 hour either before or after the coaching in a nearby chapel. Specific times will be assigned once registration forms and fees are received.
Description: This summer students will have the exciting opportunity to learn and perform chamber music with their peers. Students will learn valuable skills such as ensemble playing, communication, cueing, listening, and balance that cannot be taught in a typical private lesson. Last but not least, chamber music is fun!
-Each musician will be placed in a piano trio (piano, violin, cello) with students similar in age and level.
-The trio will meet to rehearse on their own for an hour/hour and half everyday, Monday through Friday.
-Daily sessions will be coached by a piano, violin, and cello coach (Kalo Latu, Megan Boyle, and Yeagi Kim Broadwell).
-Each ensemble will receive private instruction Monday through Friday.
-Master class will be held on Thursday and the session will conclude with a recital Friday evening.
Student musicians are required to have the music thoroughly learned before the session. Individual parts must be solid before beginning work with the other musicians. Not having to worry about learning notes or rhythms of the individual part allows the musician to concentrate on the "team" or ensemble aspects of playing with others. Students are required to take the music to their private teacher during the month before the session for individual coaching and assistance with their part.
