This class features small ensemble coaching by music faculty. Varied repertoire will feature modern and contemporary composers from the middle of the 20th century to today.  An ideal class for students who are interested in pushing musical boundaries and experimenting with new techniques and sounds. Open to string, guitar, wind, brass, piano, and percussion players. Beginner to advanced students welcome. Students will be grouped according to experience and interest, based on a placement audition.  Some composers include Riley, Reich, Messiaen, Boulez and Higdon.

Please note: Senior division instrumentalists are asked to rank their choices on the application. The specific classes that are offered will be based on this ranking and students will be placed in the most appropriate group after a placement audition.  Placement audition instructions will be sent after enrollment. Some classes with low enrollment may not be offered, but each student will be placed in one of their selected classes.
