Chamber Strings I

Chamber Strings I: Week #7

Ginger Dolden


We ran through the whole piece!  Now our goal is to clarify any confusion as to how specific areas go, and fine tune trouble spots in regards to intonation, articulation, dynamics and phrasing. The more efficiently we can clarify these details, the closer to a really unified and awesome performance we’ll be.

Fine tune

We recorded a run-through, which I’ve attached here.  Take a listen and pay attention to how you’re matching the other players, and any issues you need to work on. Don’t over-criticize yourself!  If you notice a big mistake, circle it, commit to working on it later, and move on.  What’s important is how you’re contributing to the group, not how shiny and perfect you think your playing should have been.
