Specialising in the transition from student to professional
Orchestral Repertoire / Audition Skills
Rodney Friend - Stephen Shipps
Cambridge International String Academy will place a major concentration on the study of orchestral technique. This study will serve a dual purpose: to assist with the preparation of the repertoire required for most orchestral auditions and improve the student's performing ability both technically and musically. We will also address the needs of correct mental preparation necessary for success in auditioning. We will focus on the most requested excerpts in major orchestral audition lists and will utilize Rodney Friend's The Orchestral Violinist, Volumes 1 & 2 (published by Boosey & Hawkes) provided by the Academy in all of our orchestral classes and lessons.
