    Summer Piano Ensemble Camp

    Monday, June 18th, 2018 - Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

    This is the Guild Fourth Piano Ensemble camp!

    Young pianists and instrumentalists from ages 10 to 17 years old will have the opportunity to hone their musicianship through small ensemble work. The camp is focused on the process of rehearsal and the development of the skills necessary to play in small groups.

    We have reached capacity very quickly in past years with students playing piano, violin, viola, cello, flute and clarinet.

    On the last day, our 20 campers will present the work they have accomplished for their families, all campers and their teachers.

    AAAPTG
Chamber Music Workshop @ Faber Piano Institute

    June 18 ­ 23, 2018

    9:00AM – 1:30PM weekdays & 10AM – 1PM on Saturday

    This workshop is organized in conjunction with the AAAPTG Ensemble camp. It is conceived for high school students who can play early advanced to advanced repertoire and who have experience in ensemble playing. Students will enjoy longer rehearsal periods, ensemble coaching and master classes with local professionals, as well as group activities. They will also participate in the camp celebration on Saturday, June 23, at the Faber Institute.

    We might occasionally add another location for rehearsals based on group formations. We are hoping to invite 5 to 8 students to participate in this workshop. The location will be based on the number of applicants and the instrumental combinations.

    Registration deadline is April 16, 2018.
