The EAMA Double Vision Chamber Music Program is a unique program designed for instrumentalists who compose or who wish to delve deeper into the inner understanding of the music they play.
The program draws from the rich heritage of Nadia Boulanger’s teaching and is ideal for performing musicians (instrumentalists and vocalists), who are passionately interested in creating a deeper awareness in music.
Nadia Boulanger made no distinctions in the training for musicians be they composers, instrumentalists or conductors. The EAMA Double Vision Chamber Music Program keeps to this idea with a unique course of study designed for the uncommon performer or chamber group.
Chamber music students integrate into the regular course of study at EAMA and in addition, receive weekly coachings and small group analysis seminars. Students sing in the EAMA chorale and study analysis, musicianship (ear training or score reading), along with keyboard harmony and counterpoint.
Students also have the opportunity to play in Masterclasses with prominent guest chamber performers throughout the session.
Chamber musicians study alongside student composers and conductors. The program encourages collaboration on a multitude of levels and includes concert performances at the end of the program.
Students or student groups accepted into the program are currently enrolled in, or have completed, graduate and undergraduate programs in universities and conservatories. Students may also be in the early stages of their professional careers.
Classes and chamber music coachings are taught by experienced, dedicated and sympathetic faculty from The Juilliard School, Mannes College, Westminster Choir College, the Paris Conservatory, the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, and experienced guest artists who are invited to the program.
