Advanced Vibrato (Higher Positions & Double Stops) for Upper Strings
Monday 5 and 12 October
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
Join the Benedetti Foundation for an afternoon discovering the Dance (3rd movement) from Brook Green Suite by Holst.
During the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to work both all together and in individual sections. There will be an opportunity for a new year technique reset, to enjoy storytelling through making music together and we’ll finish the day with a play along.
You will receive the parts and tutorial videos to help you to prepare from the beginning of January.
