In the String/Piano Chamber Ensemble Class, pianists will study and polish a piece of chamber music (working in collaboration with string students) under the experienced guidance of one of our faculty members.

In the Duo Piano Class, pianists will study and polish a piano selection for two pianos. Once registration forms are received, students will be paired according to age and level. Pre-formed groups are encouraged to apply. Please register early to facilitate the process of music selection.

Practice rooms will be reserved on Sunday for those students who wish to rehearse before their first String/Piano Chamber Ensemble or Piano Duo class. Please note that some students will have their first class on Sunday.
