The Chamber Music Program at AYSO in Chicago, IL is a great opportunity for young musicians to play and create chamber music in duos, trios, quartets, etc and be coached by some of Chicago’s premier musicians. Chamber music teaches diplomatic communicating skills, learning to trust the other musicians, finding one’s own musical voice, and making musical decisions together democratically is a wonderful and important experience for young people to have.
In this program, students receive a weekly hour-long coaching session tailored to each member’s level. The program includes performance opportunities in the community, including separate AYSO concerts! In addition to the weekly coaching sessions, students are encouraged to rehearse at least once on their own during the week at an agreed upon time. Players of all instruments and ages are welcome to participate in the program. The weekly coaching sessions are scheduled so as not to interfere with youth orchestra rehearsals.
