Frank Diaz

Director, Orchestral Literature and Rehearsal Strategies Workshop

Summer 2018

June 11 - June 15

This workshop is designed for music educators interested in improving their ensemble rehearsal skills through in-depth study, rehearsal, and performance of selected high-quality string literature. Participants will perform as a lab ensemble on primary and secondary instruments, learn about and apply effective strategies for rehearsal, and explore approaches to literature selection, score preparation, and effective communication for an ensemble setting. All participants will have the opportunity to rehearse the lab ensemble and receive feedback on their efforts. Along with working with the workshop director, participants will have the opportunity to engage remotely with renowned string pedagogues from across the country.
