CHAMBER MUSIC INSTITUTE

YAS-147January–May, 2015

A 16-week course (ages 12–23*) on Saturday afternoons at Mesa Community College beginning in January.

2015 registration is now closed.

The program is led by the Hausmann Quartet and guest coaches hail from the roster of Mainly Mozart’s world renowned musicians.

The Chamber Music Institute at the Mainly Mozart Youth Orchestra provides an environment where young musicians can come to realize their potential, hone their leadership skills and flourish while exploring the subtleties of ensemble playing through master classes, coaching and performance opportunities.

  • Leadership is fostered through the one-on-a-part nature of the small ensembles that are the integral and defining aspect of our program.

  • The social nature of chamber music creates an environment for  students to learn through cooperation, encouragement and energetic engagement in an extremely hands-on environment that creates a strong sense of community, encouraging positive social interaction with like-minded peers.

  • Musical mentors, or coaches, help student ensembles experience creativity, encouraging students to develop their own voice through artistic dialogue and strong communication skills.

  • Students are grouped together based on musical and technical ability and learn quickly that they must collaborate in order to achieve collective musical goals.

  • The Chamber Music Institute not only fosters musical growth, it gives students the opportunity to gain tools that will help them to become strong leaders, both in music and in life.

While connecting with peers in small ensembles—the young artists, who take part in the chamber institute, experience much more than one might expect from a typical music program. +Read more
