Intermediate String Players

Dates and Times for Scotland's Sessions in February 2021 will be published in early January. 

Advanced Vibrato (Higher Positions & Double Stops) for Upper Strings

Monday 5 and 12 October

7-8pm BST

A two-part series focusing on developing vibrato for advanced violinists & violists. A follow on to the July vibrato session, but equally as accessible to new participants, these sessions will allow you to extend your vibrato skills in the higher positions and with double stops and to explore the different colours and textures which can be achieved for different characters. This is recommended for advanced players

Intermediate players are invited to join Nicky Benedetti, conductor Alex Laing and our amazing team of tutors online to work together on Holst’s St. Paul’s Suite, Movement 1. In a unique blended experience, we will be sharing a day of music making brought to you from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Whether you’re in a small ensemble across Wales, or at home on your own, this will be a day not to miss.
