Chamber Music Coaching

The AMP Chamber Music Coaching program is an opportunity for amateur musicians to play as an ensemble under the guidance of an assigned OSL coach. Participants immerse themselves in chamber music repertoire over a period of 12 weeks, and all ensembles perform in a culminating concert at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.

Program Details
The spring 2014 program begins in March and includes eight hours of coaching with an OSL musician. Specific rehearsal schedules and repertoire will be arranged between ensembles and coaches. Ensembles that need more than eight hours to prepare for the concert with a coach will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

The DiMenna Center is available to all AMP ensembles for allotted coaching sessions and four hours of independent ensemble rehearsal time. To arrange additional rehearsal time at The DiMenna Center at a discounted rate, participants may contact Annette Shantur at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The final performance, on June 12, 2014 at 7:30 PM, will run 90 minutes. Each ensemble is given a maximum time limit and may choose to perform one or more pieces in their allotted time.

Private lessons are not included in the program, though they may be arranged separately with OSL coaches.
