CAS in chamber music
The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in chamber music course enables members of existing ensembles who already have a basic master’s degree in musical performance to develop their artistic potential and prepare for a career in this highly demanding field.
The course combines more in-depth practice of chamber music with stylistic approaches to both early and contemporary music. It is flexibly designed to meet the specific requirements of an existing ensemble (e.g. voice/piano duos, string trios, trios with piano, string quartets, quintets with piano, piano duos, wind quintets, brass quintets), taking account of the members’ professional timetables and other needs.
- Enhancing ensemble members’ individual and group skills in chamber music
- Developing abilities in an additional stylistic field of musical performance (early music, contemporary music)
- Preparing for exams and other terms of employment
- Developing the ensemble’s personality and identity
