June 2- 7, 2018
Northwest Music Retreat is a Violin, Viola, and Cello retreat with the goal of providing string teachers and students with the tools to enhance their teaching and personal technique. Through our partnership with the Grossman Method©, we will provide a 5 day workshop for relaxation, yoga, chamber music and learning.
By using the Grossman Method© to provide an understanding of advanced techniques while incorporating a somatic understanding, participants will be able to educate their students of the different muscle groups that are used while playing. Participants will also learn ways of incorporating the Grossman Method© into traditional method literature such as the Suzuki Method. The skills learned during the retreat will give participants the tools to teach students mental-physical exercises and advanced techniques to becoming a healthy, successful musician.
Participants of the Northwest Music Retreat will receive instruction from our faculty, participate in a conductor-less chamber ensemble, teach in masterclass settings and work within a small chamber group. These areas will allow participants to incorporate their learning in a real world setting while meeting and playing with other professionals in the classical music field.
