MSBOA District 4 MIDDLE school Solo and Ensemble is scheduled for Friday December 1st and Saturday December 2nd.
Registration forms have been due at the schools.
If you do not yet have a pianist for your solo, I can provide you with contact information for a trustworthy pianist.
I LOVE helping with ensemble performances and can schedule a rehearsal during any of my normal lesson times.
You must bring the original (not a copy) of your solo or ensemble piece and the original of the piano part to the event if there is one.
I will walk you through the exact experience and share tips for overcoming any obstacle you may face - real or imagined!
The Winter Boucke Student Recital is Sunday December 3rd! If you did not participate in Solo and Ensemble, this is the perfect opportunity to get your toes wet in performing. If you DID play at Solo and Ensemble, please grace us with your piece! The audience is mostly families of young violinists and each recital they reach out to me to praise all the oboe players. They love our unique sound and I promise you the performers are varied in ages and experience, this is for fun!
MSBOA District 4 HIGH school Solo and Ensemble is scheduled for Friday January 19th and Saturday January 20th.
Most of my high school students are seasoned pros at events, but if you've never done Solo and Ensemble don't let that deter you.
Remember that high school students are expected to know scales - which scales are dependent on if you are designated Proficiency I, II, or III. The students are aware this is the reason we use scales to warm up with during each lesson.
Sight reading is another addition to solo and ensemble events and we prepare for those as well.
As always, any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. I have a personal library of music and have access to a LOT of music and we regularly transpose pieces for our students if need be.
