KCMC’s Chamber Music Program consists of weekly Wednesday (5:00-6:00 pm) chamber music rehearsals/coachings by our faculty. This program is designed primarily to accommodate string players and pianists, though players of other instruments should inquire if interested. Our teaching faculty will work with participants in rehearsals specially designed to further accuracy in music reading, group intonation and sound quality, rhythmic problem solving, and other skills essential to collaborative music making. Students will be assigned to groups according to technical ability and experience with their instrument as well as their experience with chamber music, rather than by age.
Music Theory Bootcamp: In a small group/class setting, students will have an opportunity to boost individual skills of music reading and rhythmic problem solving. Additional experience with intervals and an introduction to scale forms and chords will also be included. To maximize the learning experience of the individual, students will be grouped according to current technical facility with the materials.
Introduction to Music Composition: Students will work toward creation of original music. (Note: Participants in this class should be able to demonstrate reasonable mastery of the Fundamentals of Music Theory.)
