Chamber Ensembles


Chamber Music Ensembles

Currently open to Strings and Piano students enrolled in private lessons at the Academy or another school/ studio.

Chamber music is one of the most essential and rewarding experiences of a well-rounded musical education. Chamber ensembles have 3-5 members and perform music without a conductor. Our student ensembles have a weekly coaching with a professional chamber coach. Professional chamber coaches guide the students in building skills such as group pulse, communication, the development of a blended ensemble sound, and creating an emotionally expressive performance. Students form strong musical friendships and learn about the wonderfully diverse and beautiful music written for chamber ensembles. The semester of study will culminate in a public performance on George Mason University’s Fairfax campus.

Minimum Level Requirement for String Students: ASTA grade level 3/Suzuki Book 3. Must be able to play 2 octave scales and read music with ease.
