Workshops & Community Programs

String Experience

String Experience
Saturday, November 15


String Experience is a seminar for high school violinists, violists, cellists and bassists that brings you in contact with Fredonia's conservatory-trained string faculty. The String Experience exemplifies the unique one-on-one relationship that is fostered between students and teachers at Fredonia.

Young musicians will be given the chance to improve performance and practice techniques, interact with other string players, and attend a recital with our distinguished faculty artists. String players will work in small sessions, developing performance skills, working on issues of stage fright and the audition process, improving technical skills such as shifting, intonation, tone production, and more. The atmosphere is designed to be a fun, supportive learning environment for students, but teachers and parents are also encouraged to attend - we hope you'll join us for this exciting event.
