The Hartt Community Division is pleased to present the Summer Master Classes for the Developing Musician again in 2016. These one-week, intensive programs focus on the middle- and high-school string, woodwind, or brass student. Through daily, small-group instruction, students study solo and ensemble repertoire, technique, and instrument-specific skills with our engaging and innovative faculty. Summer master classes empower students to apply new concepts and reach their potential in a challenging, yet supportive, environment. This summer program culminates in a concert for family and friends.

Master classes are available for the following instruments:

Middle School (Entering Grades 6-8)

Our Middle School master classes offer students entering grades 6 through 8, a one-week instrument specific program focusing on age appropriate repertoire, fundamentals, technique, and ensemble playing. Our faculty work closely with students to develop the whole musician not only through intensive repertoire coachingbut also through a range of course topics, including instrument maintenance and the art of practice.

Students should have a minimum of two years of playing experience before enrolling in this program. Students who wish to enroll, but do not have the required two years of experience should request an audition. To arrange for an audition please contact Barbara Hill, HCD Summer Programs Manager, at harttcomm@hartford.edu or 860.768.4451.

High School (Entering Grades 9-12)

Our High School master classes for students entering grades 9 through 12 meets in the afternoon. These instrument-specific programs provide a complete playing experience for the High School musician, focusing on regional and all-state level solo repertoire, laying and refining the foundations of technical skills, and ensemble playing. Our experienced faculty guide each course to meet the specific needs and interests of the students present. 

Students should have a minimum of three years of playing experience before enrolling in this program. Students who wish to enroll, but do not have the required three years of experience should request an audition. To arrange for an audition please contact Barbara Hill, HCD Summer Programs Manager, at harttcomm@hartford.edu or 860.768.4451.
