Finding Your Voice
Intermediate and Advanced String Players
String players, have you been frustrated by the limits of your expressive tools while playing that memorable melody or favorite tune? It’s time for your voice to be heard!! Violinist/coach Liz Field explores the technical and expressive elements of rendering a soaring, gorgeous, sustained, and sophisticatedly articulated melody. Participants bring passages in chamber music or solo works that they would like to play more expressively. Emphasis will be on developing tone production and crafting tone into song. The course begins with exercises for tone and vibrato, followed by work as an ensemble, sculpting famous melodies together. The final class is an informal and joyful play-through accompanying each other on the best tunes we can find! Repertoire will be announced later in the spring.
