BRYNN ALBANESE'S VIOLIN BOOT CAMP
WHAT IS BOOT CAMP
Boot Camp is a themed, super-intensive violin practice technique course for beginning, intermediate and advanced players.
Beginner classes will be SLOW moving and focus on the basics of position, sound production, bowing, music theory fundamentals etc.
Advanced classes will be FAST moving and cover the entire spectrum of the violin. (must know 3rd and be actively studying 5th positions)
Intermediates can chose between both classes depending on the level of challenge they would like.
Each workshop focuses on a genre of music and on specific practice techniques for breaking down difficult passages, developing muscle memory, and gaining mastery over both your left and right hands so they sync together and your automatic pilot can kick in.
If you follow these practice techniques, you will develop the skills to consistently overcome any weak points in your playing. In this way, you can become your own teacher.
Standard student repertoire
Beginners will learn two octave scales, fundamental music theory, bowing techniques, and first and third positions.
Intermediate/advanced players must know third position, being moderately comfortable with fifth position
