The RSC ChamberMusicLab Program
ChamberMusicLab is an intensive chamber music study course, involving a year-long commitment of weekly 3-hour rehearsals and coaching to learn and explore in depth the experience of being in a chamber music group. ChamberMusicLab aspires to provide a quasi-professional experience, in order to teach both the musical and interpersonal insights required for success in chamber music.  It demands a high level of individual instrumental proficiency as well as curiosity about how one’s part fits into the whole.  It demands commitment to the exacting work of matching pitch, timbre, gesture and stylistic concept with colleagues, in a manner that sustains and grows relationships.

ChamberMusicLab will take place at two levels, senior and junior. The senior program, Honors ChamberMusicLab, is designed for very advanced pre-college students, in grades 9-12, and will provide full scholarships.

Junior ChamberMusicLab is designed for serious middle school students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades, and is intended to prepare students for the Honors ChamberMusicLab. Junior ChamberMusicLab will be similar to the regular RSC chamber music program, but will provide double the instruction time, as well as many more master classes, workshops, and performance opportunities than the regular program.

RSC Studio Chamber Music Ensembles
Chamber music at RSC provides students with the opportunity to rehearse and perform in groups of 2 – 4 players, including string, piano, woodwind, brass, voice and percussion. Students are carefully placed in compatible groups and receive one hour of coaching each week with an experienced RSC faculty member.

Chamber music performance opportunities include chamber music concerts each semester and Friday night recitals throughout the year. Included in the tuition are also opportunities to play in master classes, workshops, and special events.
