Mr. Michael Dunsmoor Primo Strings Conductor
Primo Strings provides an introduction to ensemble performance for the young string student. Specific goals include unison playing and bowing, intonation and pitch adjustment, beginning independent sections, and musical elements. The emphasis in this string ensemble is on development of proper posture, bow grip, left hand position, intonation, and cultivating a beautiful tone. The fundamentals of good bow control and distribution will be introduced. Melodic and harmonic sight-reading skills will be developed. The student who seeks enrollment in this group should have knowledge of first position and a familiarity with letter note names. An audition consisting of playing a prepared solo of the student's choice and sight-reading a few simple selections is required.
