String Summer Intensive – Session 4
Led by Joshua Stone
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. Four 1-week sessions will be offered, with each week consisting of in-person classes Monday through Friday. Students may register for one or more sessions, as each will be unique and cover different skills.
Session 4 | Ukulele
Explore a new string instrument that is not found in a typical string orchestra. The ukulele offers similarities to a violin, viola, cello or bass, but is much smaller and differs in how it is tuned and played. Students will learn to play chords and melodies on the ukulele and perform together at the end of the session.
CAP will provide ukuleles for all students.
