String Summer Intensive – Session 1

Led by Joshua Stone

In-Person

Intermediate and advanced string students, ages 11-18, will develop their knowledge of string instruments, technique, literature and other music-making skills while collaborating with other young musicians. Three 1-week sessions will be offered, with each week consisting of both in-person classes. Students may register for one or more sessions, as each will be unique and cover different skills. 

Location
St. John’s Cathedral
256 E Church St.
Jacksonville, FL 32202

Session 1  |  Duos, Trios & Quartets

Small ensemble repertoire is critical for string performers and this session will focus on works specifically composed for smaller groups. Students will have the opportunity to collaborate in small ensemble groups of two, three, or four, as well as perform music together at the end of the session.
