The Hartt Community Division is pleased to present the Summer Master Classes for the Developing Musician again in 2015. These one-week intensive programs focus on the Middle and High School winds, brass, or strings student. They are designed to challenge students, encouraging them to reach their potential in a positive and supportive environment. Our highly regarded and experienced faculty guide students through three-hours of small group instruction on solo and ensemble repertoire, technique, and instrument-specific skills. These master classes, unique to Connecticut, culminate 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.
