Instrument Ensembles

BKCM String Ensembles

Our Suzuki program offers two String Ensembles which are open by audition to any students who play violin, viola, cello or bass. Led by Suzuki instructors, the two ensembles are a wonderful combination of Suzuki, Community Music School (CMS) and non-BKCM string students.

Brass Ensemble

Brass ensemble is for young students with at least two years of private lessons. Playing in an ensemble is essential for any brass musician where they can learn important elements such as how to play in tune, blend and support their sound and balance within a section. Students work on intermediate brass repertoire including classical, pop and jazz selections.

Guitar Ensemble

Guitar ensemble is an opportunity for young guitarists with at least two years of private lesson experience who wish to take their guitar playing to the next level. This ensemble will improve student’s sight reading, chord knowledge and build right hand and left hand technique.

String Ensemble

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.

Piano Ensemble

Piano Ensemble is a supportive, convivial setting for beginner pianists interested in developing musicianship, enhancing listening skills and deepening the musician-instrument connection.

Brooklyn Conservatory Chorale (BCC)

This dynamic 40+ member mixed choir performs a rich variety of musical styles, both a cappella and with accompaniment from the Renaissance to today.

Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO)

Experience the joys of performing in a full orchestra! Open by audition to adult orchestral musicians from intermediate to advanced levels, the BCCO performs the great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire to contemporary works by living composers.

Chamber Music

Youth, teens and adults who have had at least three years experience on the piano, strings, woodwinds, brass or voice are invited to join one of our chamber ensembles. Each ensemble is supported by a professional coach and rehearses weekly, playing repertoire that includes a variety of genres and styles and are tailored to participants’ interest and skill levels.
