Enrichment Classes!
 
The OSA is excited with the return of our enrichment classes!
 
All enrichment classes are open to all instruments.
 
Stephanie Scholman, in her Improv Class (C.A.D Creative Ability Development) will introduce the student to the world of musical improvisation with fun and educational sessions run on Saturday afternoons (October 29 & November 5)! Many, if not all, of the great composers we play were able to take a melody and improvise right on the spot, on their instrument! In fact it was considered an important part of being a good musician back in the day. This class is geared for all ages with minimum late book 1 level,  no experience is necessary!
 
Speaking of back in the day, learning about the music, composers and  different eras in music history will give students a much better perspective and insight into their music and how to interpret and play it with more understanding. That’s where the Music History Talks come into play. Michelle Coon will cover the Baroque period (Bach, Handel and Vivaldi), the virtuosic musician of the 1800’s, the birth of the Symphony and more including a talk on the origins of many of our beloved Christmas carols. These 5 talks  throughout the year will be presented on Zoom so you need not leave the comfort of your living room! . They are geared towards 8 to 13 year olds and if there is interest a more in depth talk can be given on each subject for the 14 to adult age group. Please email info@oakvillesuzuki if you are interested in registering for this program.

Joining a Chamber ensemble is the most collaborative form of music making.  Every member has their own individual part to play, while all members learn to work together as ONE.  Each musician must contribute fully for the group to achieve success.  Students gain musical and interpersonal skills.  They learn to listen to and watch each other closely; sometimes leading and other times following.  They develop a richer and more deeply felt understanding of music.  They learn to give and be open to constructive criticism.  All of this contributes greatly to important life skills.  Oh, also playing chamber music is fun!
