William Pu Music Academy offers a Chamber Music Program to middle and high school students. WPMA believes that chamber music is an essential pedagogical tool for all music students, along with solo and orchestra playing.
Chamber music not only teaches students how to deal with essential skills such as listening, matching, cueing, and balance but also requires students to develop clear, constructive, and supportive communication skills
Interested students are assigned a chamber music group with whom they will rehearse with on a regular basis. They are coached by a designated WPMA faculty member once a month for 90 minutes. The group performs at the end of the semester as well as for any other performance opportunities. Tuition for 5 sessions per semester is $250. Additional coaching charges may applied if extra lessons are needed.
