MUSIC 491 Advanced Chamber Ensemble (1 per semester/maximum of 4)
Advanced Chamber Ensemble meets at least two hours per week - once with the instructor for coaching and at least once for an additional rehearsal without the instructor's presence. Course objectives include, but are not limited to, the development of rehearsal and ensemble skills, an increased awareness of musical styles, public performance(s) of works prepared, and the development of the interpersonal skills necessary for the players to operate as a unit. Chamber music is an integral part of instrumental musical training. It is an important partner with conducted ensembles in the performance preparation of musicians. Evaluation of student work is based on participation in rehearsals, the progress made by the ensemble, and the quality of the ensemble's performances. The course is offered during fall and spring semesters.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
