WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT...
Our Ensemble members are not only compelling performers,
but also highly experienced teachers in both private and
classroom settings. We will guide your students
through an unprecedented range of styles
and improvisational approaches.
(The Music Director has been teaching since 1974.)
For K-9 presentations, in a typical 50-minute time block,
we have found that performing four pieces works best.
We then provide a walkthrough of
the evolution of our arrangement of
a familiar pop song from the 60s, by presenting first
the original recording, and then our transformed version.
Lastly, we field questions from the students,
drawing from each of our performers' rich backgrounds.
For our music-specific high school and college presentations,
we present a more detailed overview of
different approaches to composing and arranging,
as well as improvisation. The contribution of
contemporary classical music, as well as various world music
traditions, are incorporated into our demonstrations.
