Chamber Music Lessons

Enhance your music lessons by playing music with friends! The study of chamber music allows students to work together through focused activities and shared goals. Ensemble playing gives each member a chance to develop listening skills, musical sensitivity, and group dynamics.

Students in our Chamber Music Lessons will participate in a structured high-level chamber ensemble where they will be coached weekly by a member of our Gifted Music School faculty, as well as a weekly guided rehearsal. Chamber music builds essential musical growth for students by enhancing communication, note-reading, rhythm, score study, listening, and more.

Elements of Music Composition

This music course is designed to help students develop their music composition skills by focusing on musicality and good writing techniques in the following five areas: melody, harmony, rhythm, texture, and form. 

We will pay particular attention to creativity and problem-solving by doing weekly compositional exercises that present various challenges and limitations to overcome and work around. Additionally, each music student will have a personal project that they will be able to work on throughout the semester, which will lead to a performance, either live or digital, at the end of the term. Please note that this course is geared towards classical composition, not popular styles.
