For two weeks of Master Classes, students played their prepared repertoire for Amy Wulfman, and we worked together on all manner of topics ranging from stage presence, to vibrato and musical style. A great time was had by all!
Really, I do. I’m a total fan. I can come close to the camera and demonstrate the most precise way to set a hand shape, or model a fingering for a difficult passage in our repertoire. Students working on finding their personal vibrato can watch up close, and experience exactly how I make mine work, and begin to create their own. They have the instant visual feedback of looking in the Zoom camera and seeing their work in progress. This avoids the need to walk through the home in search of a mirror, and the possible disputes with teen-aged house mates using said mirror! Okay, I will concede that the sound is not concert hall worthy. But it’s good enough to tell if things are getting scratchy, and the shoulder, wrist and fingers need to relax more in order to get that silky tone we all love so much. C’mon over to our Zoom Studio!
Amy Wulfman will be bringing her students on a concert tour of Sicily this summer with the Stretto Youth Chamber Orchestra. This is a great opportunity for cultural exchange through music making. The orchestra, under the baton of Sherri Anderson, will perform throughout the region.
I teach Monday through Friday in Princeton, I’m teaching at the New England Conservatory on Saturdays. Feel free to contact me to ask about auditions and the status of my waiting list in either place. Thank you!
Workshop with Amy Wulfman, Tuesday-Thursday June 4-6, 2019, 6:00pm -7:15pm
Back by popular demand! Violinists and Violists of all levels, come begin and/or deepen your viola skills.
I believe all violinists should be conversant on viola, and all violists should work on becoming excellent sight-readers. Learning violin gives students fast fingers and a great technique which is totally transferable to viola should the student ever decide that the lower sound is his or her heart’s desire!
Playing violin and viola enables musicians to have the fun of jumping into performing groups at any time of their lives, as good violists are rarer than violinists — often welcomed with open arms! The viola has a lovely, warm sound, and has a lower range than the violin. The viola is the middle voice between violin and cello.
There is no need to choose between instruments! Once a student knows how to play violin, playing viola is largely a matter of reading notes in a different clef. Violin parts are written in treble clef while viola is in alto clef.
This course is designed for two separate groups:
- Middle School through High School group (rising grades 7-12),
- Young Musicians group (rising grades 2-7).
Tuition: (until workshop is full) $245.00
China Tour, June 2016
Amy Wulfman brought her students on a concert tour of China this summer with the Stretto Youth Chamber Orchestra. This was a great opportunity for cultural exchange through music making. The orchestra, under the baton of Sherri Anderson, delighted audiences in Shanghai, Wuxi and Beijing.
