Chamber Strings I

Chamber Strings I: Week #6

Ginger Dolden


We reviewed all sections, individually. By now you should be running the sections straight through as well as working on individual practice.

Articulation, ensemble playing

We focused on matching articulations and watching for cues from either the first violins or whomever had a moving part in different sections. Articulations and cues need to be written in your part. Don’t be the jerk that forgot to look up or play staccato because you thought you’d remember to do it 100% of the time after we talked about it.
