This short, intensive program is designed to prepare students for serious high school study and, eventually, college auditions, and it segues beautifully into UW's long standing Summer Music Camp, but it works great as a stand-alone kick start, too.
My friend Rachel Bergman and I will lead students through the following schedule:
Noon: check in and registration begins
3pm: Welcome, Establishing a Breathing and Stretching Routine
4pm: Building a Better Tone
7:30pm: Faculty Recital
10:30pm options: Piccolo Basics OR Conquering Performance Anxiety
1:30: How to Practice
2pm: Articulation Class
3pm: Master Class
7pm: Open Mic Night: everyone plays!
10:30am: supervised practice
12pm: closing remarks and picnic lunch
You can read all about it and register here. Housing is affordable and tuition is free for all. And of course, contact me if you have questions at nicole [dot] riner [at] gmail [dot] com.
