Are you looking for a way to play music with other people? Do you already play in a group that is looking to develop your chamber music skills or looking to have a more structured or intensive experience? Did you know that playing chamber music develops skills akin to living life in harmony with others? If any of these things resonate with you this class is for you! You will:
Groups can be preformed or I can match you with other players of similar level. You can choose one of three program offerings, see dates for the 2023-24 season below. I will send out your group assignment and music at least 2 weeks before the first coaching Students must learn their individual parts thoroughly before the first rehearsal so we can concentrate on chamber music skills.
"A heightened awareness of the need to listen is just one of the many things I gained from being coached by Colleen. Some other things I learned were how to tease apart a work, how to look for cues that will be most helpful, how to work slowly, carefully, and thoughtfully, how to not give up hope, how to take whatever time is needed, how to work on transitions, how to be positive and supportive, and how lying on the floor for ten minutes is enormously helpful."

It is strongly advised that you try to meet independently between lessons to synthesize the material learned in the workshop each day.
