What is it?

A fun afternoon of chamber music. Come alone or bring a few friends and we'll organise the rest.

 

Whether you've never played chamber music before or you already have an established group, this workshop caters to all string players wanting to improve their chamber music skills.

WAYACHAMP's unique WAYAJAM model sees students of all levels and abilities working on their chamber music skills. Students of similar levels are formed into trios and quartets and using sections of a set piece, work on:

  • technical developments in tuning, rhythm, pulse, blend and balance

  • musical developments in expression, style and interpretation

  • personal developments including teamwork, active listening and confidence

The afternoon culminates in a casual performance for participants' families at the end of the session with everyone playing in the same piece of music - singular voices collaborating together as one.

Some WAYAJAM events include extra sight-reading sessions - students may request for specific pieces to be played during this session.

Unsure if you're at the right level to play the set piece?

 

Don't worry, WAYACHAMP provides abridged arrangements of the set piece at various levels to ensure all students can participate in performing the piece in one way or another.
