The Young Performers Workshop is my favorite ensemble. Performing with musicians my age who are so talented and dedicated to their instruments makes me want to play better. Mrs. Anderson does a great job of selecting beautiful music that challenges each student at their level - and that’s fun to play! If I had to choose only one ensemble to participate in, it would be YPW.
I believe parents of “serious” young musicians will flock to your workshop because of the quality of the teaching. Thank you for a sparkling diamond of an experience.
I was so impressed with how children learned to direct themselves.I was so impressed with the children’s work together. I loved that children spent some of the rehearsals without an adult coach so that they teamed to direct themselves, listen to each other, and decide together which parts of the music to work on. Also loved that they performed without a conductor, just like adult chamber musicians! A great opportunity to make music with others.
I gained confidence playing with other people.I had a fantastic time and learned a lot. This Workshop has so many different levels so you feel comfortable in your group and it is so much fun. I loved it!
I am so happy we were introduced to Grace Anderson and the Young Performers Workshop. Not only did we find a group of musicians who complement and challenge her [our daughter’s] abilities, but also a program that develops her skills as a leader and team player. YPW concerts are the ones I look forward to the most as I sit in awe of the extraordinary level of talent of all the young musicians in the program.
The workshop far exceeded our expectations.
