Michael Pavlik

Artistry, knowledge and community through chamber music.

Clinic Synopsis:

This clinic will examine how a yearlong chamber ensemble program can dramatically affect the artistic and musical knowledge of students. The clinic will focus on the importance of developing “gig” or performance opportunities for these ensembles in their community by illustrating how a schedule of real-world playing opportunities instills a sense of direction for rehearsals and cultivates a shared sense of purpose and commitment to each other and their wider community.
