In addition to private lessons, playing in an ensemble with other strings is essential for students to focus on sound production, sight-reading, tuning, rhythm and setup of the instrument. Young players develop their bow technique, expression and dynamics in a fun group experience. We recommend a minimum of two+ years experience on violin, viola, cello or bass to join this ensemble. Students practice and perform a variety of repertoire from classical to pop and jazz. Playing similar and individual parts builds confidence and joining with other strings is a satisfying sonic experience. Students are encouraged to practice ensemble repertoire with their private lesson teacher.

BKCM offers reduced-tuition enrollment for this class to all students currently taking private lessons. For further details on this program, please speak to a registrar.

Ensembles

BKCM offers a wide range of ensembles for students of all ages, levels and experience. Students are motivated to practice repertoire outside of class and encouraged by their peers to take on new challenges. Taught by experts in the field, our ensembles include performance opportunities and a chance to connect with a community of other instrumentalists who are interested in developing their artistry. Students enrolled in our private lessons are eligible to join many ensembles at a highly discounted rate. Contact our registration desk for more information.
