Ensembles - Chamber Music Ensembles
Chamber music provides an invaluable learning experience because of the way it challenges each student to produce independent musical lines in harmony with each other!  It stresses skills such as phrasing, counting, intonation, tone colors, rhythm, cooperation and responsibiity.  Each ensemble is a 'team,' working together to produce beautiful music!

Keyboard Ensemble - Age: varies according to ability
 

Students will have the opportunity to use their keyboard skills to play pieces in unison and in groups such as duos, trios, and quartets. The class is for those who already have a background of lessons in reading music and keyboard or piano playing. Students will develop the skills of keeping a steady beat, listening to one another while playing their own part, and following conducting patterns. A culminating activity will be an "informance" for parents of pieces learned. The enjoyment of playing with others is a key component of the class.

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 no later than June 8, 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.
