Ensembles
Ensemble - Fun with Beginning Ensembles Age 8 and up

Chamber music brings musicians together to experience the joy of making music together! Participants learn valuable skills that teach cooperation, listening skills, and responsibility. Each ensemble is a “team” working together to produce a great piece of music! The “Beginning Ensemble student” is not a beginner but a student who can read music fairly easily, and is an independent reader. Violinists, violists, cellists, and pianists who have studied for several years, need to consult Linda Tajima, and are most welcome to apply for this class. Please contact Linda Tajima (lktajima@claremontmusic.org) no later than June 9, if possible. Beginning ensemble levels are: Suzuki Book 1 & 2 (violinists must know G Major at a minimum), or Certificate of Merit Level 1 & 2 for strings. CM Level 3 and Suzuki Book 3 are also acceptable. Pianists, please discuss this with your private instructor. Regular attendance is required!

Ensemble - Fun with Intermediate Ensembles - Age 9 and up

Chamber music has the wonderful capability of bringing players together, teaching cooperation towards a common goal—presenting the music for others to enjoy listening to, and for the performers to bond while working together! Piano trios, string quartets, and other chamber groups, will be placed together in order to have a cohesive group. Violin and viola students should have a comfortable grasp of positions (up to V Position) and be strong readers, since there is one student on a part. Students should be at CM level 4-6 or 7 to participate in this level ensemble. Please discuss participation with Linda Tajima (lktajima@claremontmusic.org) by June 9.

Ensemble - Fun with Advanced Ensembles - Age 10 and up

Chamber music for the advanced musician is very rewarding for the participants and the listeners! Together, the musicians work toward a common goal of making music together, and while doing so, they learn leadership, cooperation, listening skills, and responsibility. Students (advanced violinists, violists, cellists, and pianists) are grouped in ensembles of the following: piano trios or quartets, string trios or quartets, or various other combinations, including winds if desired. There is one student per part, so it is very important that the students are independent readers and are very well-motivated. Students must come with music prepared. The advancement level for violins are at JMF Concerto class II, III, or Senior Class, or Difficult Solo Class II and up, CM Level 7 and above (Bach a minor concerto and up). Violists and cellists should be around CM level 6 and up. Pianists interested should contact Ms. Tajima and speak with their private instructor. Attendance is EXTREMELY important. Best efforts are made to schedule classes around student needs. Please discuss participation with Linda Tajima (lktajima@claremontmusic.org) by June 9.
