Thank you Jargar for funding me to go on the National Strings Chamber Music Course. I am looking forward to taking part in all the activities that will be on offer. I am hoping that being on this course will help me work better with others. I will also like to learn more challenging violin fingering positions and play like a professional. Daniel (11)
learnt and experienced so much in the four days I was on the course. During the course I played as part of a quartet and performed a piece called pizz-a-tango. I also played as part of a quintet and we performed a piece called Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. I played a part in the chamber orchestra and played Evening At The Disco at the end of course concert. All of this improved my chamber music playing. This is because I am now able to play better as part of a group because I have learnt to listen to others and be mindful not to play too loud or play any other person's part.
I was also able to work on my solo pieces including a piece from George F Handel called Sonata in F major which I played in the end of course concert. I also worked on a piece called Chiquilin De Bachin by Astor Piazzolla.
Doing so many lessons in one day undeniably paid off when I played my solo piece and chamber music in small groups at the concert because I didn’t make as many mistakes as when I arrived on the course.
Thank you very much again.
