Course Descriptions

The programme is designed to foster a deep understanding of one’s instrument as well as their role within a small chamber group and larger orchestral context, culminating in memorable and life shaping experiences for every young musician.

Private Lessons

Students will receive multiple private lessons with Juilliard artist faculty, who are world-class musicians with extensive teaching experience. These one-on-one sessions will focus on raising students’ technical, artistic, and performance skills. Accepted students are expected to bring solo repertoire in various stages of performance readiness (performance ready, currently studying, and new repertoire). In addition to solo repertoire, lessons will cover assigned chamber and orchestral repertoire, as needed.

Orchestra

A core offering of the programme, students will participate daily in orchestra rehearsals, where they will perform alongside their teachers. Under the guidance of a master conductor, they will explore carefully selected repertoire covering a broad range of musical styles and eras.

Chamber Music

Students will be assigned to chamber groups (of mainly 3-5 players) with faculty-selected repertoire to be studied.  Each group will receive multiple coaching sessions with Juilliard artist faculty as well as dedicated time for chamber music rehearsal.  Through the study of chamber music, students hone their collaborative and leadership skills, guided by faculty, to develop increased musical independence.

Master Classes

Part public performance, part lesson, advanced students will have the opportunity to perform solo and chamber music repertoire for their colleagues while receiving coaching from Juilliard artist faculty. This opportunity gives students a chance to share their work with their peers while receiving coaching from different faculty members. This shared experience allows and encourages all students to learn from each other in observing the different approaches to each of the various works performed.

Sectionals

Led by Juilliard artist faculty, these sessions are dedicated to working more in-depth on the orchestral repertoire, troubleshooting technical issues that may arise, in a focused and targeted environment. Blending and ensemble skills will also be highlighted within each section of the orchestra in efforts to develop a cohesive ensemble sound.
