BMC Youth String Ensemble
Director: Heather Sommerlad
For Intermediate String Players
Fall 2020: We will be starting the year with online instruction.
Start date: mid-September
Tuition: $65/semester, $40 if enrolled in lessons
Heather will be in touch with past participants. If you are interested in joining please give the office a call and we will put you in touch with her!
Students ready for the next level of challenge and growth after Tigers or a year or two in the After School Program will join other intermediate youth players in this ensemble. Participants should be familiar with all first position finger patterns, have a good understanding of rhythmical figures, and be comfortable with different articulations and bow directions. If there is any question about level please get in touch – we are happy to assist with placement!
This fall we will be starting out online, using an easy web site based tool called “Flipgrid” to connect students with the music, Heather, and each other. Students will have assignments, recordings to work with, and the ability to post videos of their own for Heather to review.
The Youth String Ensemble typically performs twice a year, in December and June.
Registration is open on an on-going basis. Tuition is $65 for the semester, $40 if also enrolled in private lessons. Scholarships are available.
