Chamber Strings I

Chamber Strings I: Week #8

Ginger Dolden

We did more run-throughs and fine-tuning, and recorded again.  Take a listen and assess one more time.  

This week is about confidence, energy and endurance. Be proud and satisfied of the work you’ve put in.  A few pointers in the week before performing:

  • Don’t over-practice.  Focus on the very, very specific parts that trip you up or feel weird.  

    • Run through sections of the piece, but not the entire thing. All material you run through should sound like a performance - energetic, loud and confident!  

    • Envision your audience, the stage lights, the whole shebang. Visualize giving the best performance you’ve ever given. :) The more you can visualize it, the more comfortable and fun it will be the day of!
