Learning from the Masters



It's more than music!  MYA's Instrument Classes started up early this morning.  Gerardo Ribeiro, Professor at Northwestern University, is doing a class for violinists, and our own Dr. D is leading the basses.   The purpose of this MYA offering is two-fold: to improve technique and to promote learning from peers.  In the first half of the class all students participate in technique exercises and/or discussion about performance issues.  The second part is a master class.  Students who normally hear their colleagues in the section or in a chamber music ensemble, get to hear them as soloists, and the soloists receive feedback from a master teacher. Learning from others in a non-competitive setting is a life lesson.
