Chamber Music

Pineland Suzuki School Chamber Music Program            2020-2021    We need music now more than ever!

Welcome to both new and returning chamber music students!

Deadline to sign up is September 1.


Pineland Suzuki School offers chamber music for intermediate and advanced students, Book 4 and up. Playing in a small group is an essential step to becoming an independent and mature musician.  With a single instrument on each part, this learning opportunity is also a great responsibility. Once the music has been provided, you are expected to learn the notes before each rehearsal.  Attendance at each rehearsal is required.  


Because of the immense benefits to students’ musicianship training, we highly recommend all Book 4 and up students take chamber music for at least one session and/or in the summer. Besides, it is soooooo much fun!


Each session includes 6 coaching rehearsals and at least 1 concert. If the same group signs up for both sessions 1 & 2, th

ey will have more time to explore their piece in depth! Look at your schedule carefully to plan which session(s) you will attend. Each rehearsal and concert are required. 



Session 1:  every Friday 3:45-5:15  or 4:30-6:00 September 4-October 16    

$75 tuition fee  for  6 weeks of coaching plus a performance:

45 minute coaching session, 45 minutes practice on your own with a mentor


Session 2:  every Friday  3:45-5:15 or 4:30-6:00 October 23-December 4 (except the Friday after Thanksgiving)

$75 tuition fee  for a 6 weeks of coaching plus a performance:

45 minute coaching session, 45 minutes practice on your own with a mentor
