DESCRIPTION: This class is designed to take the student (either a string player or flutist/wind player) on a journey through the creation of the best sound possible on their instrument. The focus is on understanding the basics of the overtone series, enhancing ensemble playing, and playing in tune with oneself. The concepts of tone color, intonation, sound production, musical shape, support (and breathing for winds), posture and vibrato will also be discussed. Students will have the chance to experiment with various exercises to meet these goals, and individuals will be welcomed to play for the group in a traditional masterclass format.
Max Participants: 40
