Age 12 & under
Full day = 9 AM - 4 PM / Half-day = 9 AM - 12 PM
Geared towards beginners aged 12 and younger. Students will learn about basic instrument upkeep and participate in daily technique and performance classes, violin or cello ensemble. It's designed to get young children excited about playing, teach them good technical habits, build confidence and help them develop a peer group of like-minded students for friendship and learning. Younger students (~8 years old and under; playing from Suzuki books 1 & 2, or RCM Gr. 1 and lower) will be more suited to the half-day program (9:00-12:00). Mornings include snack time and percussion class with Victoria Sparks! The full-day program (9:00-4:00) is for students playing at a slightly higher level (Suzuki books 3 & 4/RCM Gr. 2-5) and mature enough to handle a full day of instruction (generally aged 8-12). Afternoons include chamber music, theory games, recreational time and some one-on-one instruction.
Advanced (age 10 - 24)
9 AM - 4 PM
For advanced and intermediate level students aged 10-24, Rosamunde's Core program offers a significant amount of private instruction, accompaniment sessions (with one of our four stellar pianists: Darryl Friesen, Madeline Hildebrand, Leanne Regehr Lee and David Moroz), daily technique and master classes, as well as chamber music coachings and orchestra rehearsals. To further cultivate physical comfort and mental capacity while playing and performing, sessions including Pilates, Alexander Technique, the Feldenkrais Method™ and Peak Performance Psychology will round out the daily schedule. Students should play at a RCM Gr 5 level or higher.
Adult amateur ensembles
One of our unique programs is an eight-evening chamber music program for adult amateur string players, directed by Elise Lavallée. Participants will be assigned to a chamber ensemble to perform at a retirement residence. Master class and technique class time will also be offered. Individuals and preformed groups are encouraged to apply. Rosamundiade participants are also invited to audit daytime Core Program classes and to participate in technique classes. Private lessons with Rosamunde faculty may be arranged by request for an additional cost.
