Core Curriculum Classes
1. Master class consists of three to four students that get individual instruction with a faculty member. Each student works on the technical and musical skills as well as the repertoire that is individually appropriate for them. While each student is getting their individual time, the other students in the class have the opportunity to observe, which is a highly valuable in Dr. Suzuki’s methodology.
The Orchestral Experience
Orchestra experience includes a placement in one of three orchestras: The Sinfonietta, The Philharmonia, and The Chamber Orchestra (for Young Artists). All students are placed in one of these three ensembles according to their age and ability on the Instrument. The conductors prepare each ensemble to perform a number of works on the Orchestra Concert held on Thursday evening. The faculty also teach the students ensemble-playing skills and music-reading skills.
