Video lessons hit right note in rural Minnesota schools | StarTrubube.com

Video lessons hit right note in rural Minnesota schools | StarTrubube.com | Viola Players Paradise | Scoop.it

Jeremy Swider doesn’t believe in out-of-body travel. But when the music instructor worked with orchestra students in Grand Rapids this week, he was 175 miles away.

 

Swider is part of an experiment that brings professional musicians from Minnesota’s oldest music school — the nonprofit MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis — to classrooms in rural Minnesota through real-time video instruction. Think video conferencing, but with excellent audio and visual capacities on a 40-inch screen.

 

Launched in 2011 to help cash-strapped rural school districts boost their music programs, it’s grown from a pilot project in one school to 17 school districts and 1,500 students. And the numbers keep growing.

 

The program is one of the first of its kind in the nation, said MacPhail President Paul Babcock. While a handful of the nation’s premier music schools for advanced students have tapped the technology, it’s never been available to ordinary — and often lower income — students in small-town bands and orchestras.

 

With the holidays approaching, music directors across the state are getting guest teachers to help prepare for their December concerts.

 

“For me, it gives another perspective on how to teach [music] concepts,” said Dan Alto, director of instruction for the Itasca Orchestra and Strings Program, which was working with Swider this week on the big screen.

 

“It’s really nice to do something different,” added Rachel Hagen, a viola player at Grand Rapids High School who is part of his group. “You learn new techniques.”

 

The instruction, so far, has been free to participating schools and students, thanks to underwriting from the Minnesota State Arts Board’s Legacy funding, the National Endowment for the Arts and foundation grants.

- According to spotlight-hungry violinists, violas are only good for filling in a bit of middle-part harmony and should never be trusted with a good tune.

Dean: Short Stories (Vancouver SO)

Dean: Short Stories (Vancouver SO) | Viola Players Paradise | Scoop.it

By David Gordon Duke, The Vancouver Sun (19 January 2014)

 

"Next up was Dean’s Short Stories, an exceptionally crafted work for string orchestra. Over the course of five aphoristic segments, Dean (a viola player as well as a composer) demonstrates an insider’s knowledge of strings. His music is more than effects: there is a taut logic and feeling of absolute rightness to everything in the work."
