Seminars will be a mix of: 

Student Presentations and Discussions

Students will give short oral presentations on a favorite piece from the standard repertoire and point out why they think a certain section of a particular piece is effective. 

As a group we then discuss what we are noticing in the score that makes this work successful or meaningful, then brainstorm how students can apply these strategies to their craft.


Craft & Career Seminars on different topics

What scores should look like

How to work with performers who are performing your music

Delve into the idiomatic strategies and instrument colors unique to each ensemble they will hear at the festival

Real-world skills (networking, access to your work on the internet, social media, building a portfolio)
