– an innovative program for strings players of violin, viola, cello and double bass between the ages of 10 and 21 with 3 years or more of lessons on their instrument. This is an opportunity for players to develop musical and technical string playing skills, to nurture a creative and flexible approach to string instruments and music-making, to have a positive and fun holiday experience, and to meet other like-minded young people with whom students can relate and share positive experiences.
This is not a program for beginners.
Staff will be led by Chris Stone (violin) with Holly Downes (viola and double bass), Shenzo Gregorio (violin), Rachel Johnston (cello) and the YMS team. This is a stellar line-up of leading Australian string players.
