Am I ready for Chamber Music Intensive?

Students should have very good late intermediate to advanced playing and reading skills. Previous ensemble experience is not required.

Do I have to audition?

After you register, you will be contacted to schedule a 15-20 minute placement appointment. The program coordinator will assess your playing level and musical interests in order to make the best placement for you in ensembles. Students should prepare one or two contrasting pieces representative of their current skill level. Students who participated in Chamber Music Intensive in the past or those who are current students at Indian Hill Music will not have to audition unless the coordinator requests it to help in ensemble placement.

What are the check-in and check-out times?

Students should arrive between 9:15 and 9:30 am. Check-out time is 4:30-4:45 pm. For young teens or pre-teens an adult must come in to the building to check-out students at the end of each day of the program.

Will I be able to practice the music before the program starts?

Once registration numbers are sufficient and ensembles have been formed, music will be selected and distributed to all the students, at least several weeks before the start of the program.

Is home practice required?

The high level of this program requires that all students practice and prepare each piece diligently throughout the week. Coaches will be clear in their expectations about which sections in the music students need to work on. If sufficient time for individual practice is not available during the program hours, home practice is required.

Is daily attendance required?

Yes. Each student in every ensemble is essential to success. In small ensembles a student's absence, even for part of a day, makes it much more difficult for the other musicians to make progress. Appointments and other activities should not be scheduled during the Chamber Music Intensive week.

What should I wear?

The students should wear comfortable, casual clothing. T-shirts and shorts are okay. Footwear must be worn in the building at all times.

What about lunch and snacks?

Students should provide their own lunch, drinks, and snacks for the week. Because nut allergies are so common, please avoid bringing anything with nuts. Students will have access to a refrigerator and microwave.

Are the performances open to the public?

Yes. Family and friends are welcome to attend the closing performances on Friday 8/10 at 5:00 pm and Saturday 8/11 at 4:00 pm.
