Chamber Music

Group Classes

Discover and explore music in an engaging collaborative setting.

Engage with a community of like-minded musicians to explore, rehearse, create and perform chamber music. The joy and art of making music together is at the very heart of the Levine experience and is essential to the development of a well-rounded musician. Levine’s highly regarded chamber music faculty work with students of all ages and abilities to help students explore this treasured body of musical literature.

The study and performance of chamber masterpieces are offered to musicians of all levels and ages through Chamber Music programs at Levine. These classes enrich students’ understanding of music performance art and teach them to interact with each other when playing music. Not only does chamber music improve our ability to interpret musical notation and musical rhythm, it also gives us information about the processes we use to build musical forms. Chamber music studies enhance our musicianship through the study of the historical background of composers and musical works.

The current online/hybrid format of chamber music studies at Levine will offer you a chance to develop your knowledge and imagination and prepare you for making music together live when it becomes possible. We hope that you will find a chamber music class that fits your interest, and we look forward to seeing you in our classes in 2020-21.
