EXPANDING OUR HORIZONS: Enjoying the Journey from the Bach a minor Concerto to the Mozart Concerti: Violin

Instructor: Linda Case,

Event Description

In this 15 hour course, we will explore repertoire that will help develop musical expression as well as offer the student a variety of musical styles and cultures. I really enjoy exposing my students to music from different countries and music from contemporary and romantic composers. The thrill comes when a piece speaks to the student and I hear a different bow command, a new vibrato color and see them motivated to practice. Composers like Jardanyi, Dancla, Lutoslawski, DeBeriot, Rieding, Sarasate, Portnoff, Bartok, Kabalevsky, Kreisler and more will be included in Expanding Our Horizons. Since the Mozart Concerti require the highest artistic level to perform well, we want our teaching to be inspired and motivating and we want our students to be prepared technically and musically for this experience. Course participants will be sent the list of pieces and technique to be covered well before the course.


All books covered in the overview course.

Audition: Violin Basic, or Violin Intermediate, or Violin Comprehensive, or Viola Basic, or Viola Intermediate, or Viola Comprehensive.

Deadline: All audition materials must be submitted by July 31 *
*A discounted Audition Fee applies if audition is submitted before June 5. If submitted within 8-weeks of the course start date, the regular audition fee will apply.
