The youth course for violin and viola is mainly addressed to participants aged over 10 years, who attend violin, viola or violoncello lessons for at least two years now.
Achieving progress in technique and in music as well as creating a climate which enables the effective study to be pleasant and profitable at the same time, is the main purpose of this course. Pieces of advice about proper body position, a solution to technical problems, development of a finer touch sensibility and a dialectical analysis of various approaches of interpretation are embodied to our teaching pursuits.
The mental planning and discovering of the “suitable”, for each piece, sound, the growing and expanding of personal music horizons, the searching and applying of complex interpreting approaches, pieces of advice about quick by heart learning of music pieces and playing without use of score are additional parts of our lessons.
Violin or Viola players, preparing an examination, competition or an orchestra audition – tryout are also welcome.
Participants preferring to work in an instrumental ensemble / chamber music and less interested in solo lessons can also take this course, by choosing Ensemble as main subject or register directly to the string orchestra course.
We would kindly request participants wanting to present pieces with piano accompaniment (with our lecturers, a student participating in the piano accompaniment course or with other participants also wanting to attend chamber music courses) to send us the piano scores, in form of pdf file, at the registration time or, at latest, two (2) months before lessons begin.
