Why should young children play chamber music?

The greatest joy of learning an instrument is to be able to play chamber music.

The music-making experience only gets better when you play with your friends. Listening, awareness, responsiveness, and flexibility are all things which can be talked about in lessons, but they are learned so quickly through a chamber music experience. The more experience gained, the more that students can develop their radar and be very quick to react and respond to the players around them – the music becomes alive and breathing, with each performance being a unique experience.

By playing in small groups, young students get a head start on developing their listening and teamwork skills. We believe that young musicians should start playing with other musicians virtually from the beginning of their study. We offer pieces from early beginner level on up so that your students can start playing in groups before they even learn how to read eighth notes!


How will my child benefit from Chamber Strings Music Camp?

Your child will learn how to be better listeners and how to work together by playing in a small group. Chamber Strings summer camp strives to teach students to be more disciplined, to improve their musicianship, and to become better listeners while keeping their innate, childlike creativity alive and thriving.

*Please note there are NO individual lessons.
