Students will be placed in small ensembles with other students at a similar level of playing. This course introduces students to chamber music repertoire, and to learn how to rehearse and perform in small ensembles. Chamber Ensembles will be coached by DSO musicians and will rehearse on a weekly basis. Ensemble rehearsal times are decided upon between members and coaches of each ensemble. 

Composition teacher Jeremy Crosmer helps students develop core skills in writing melodies, harmonizing, phrasing, studying music.
