Bass: Classical Orchestral & Solo Playing (Intermediate-Advanced)
This course is the next progressive step for double bass players who completed Upright & Electric Bass: Level I. This course focuses primarily on arco playing, and covers fingerings in upper positions, vibrato, intonation, tone, and various bow strokes. By the end of the course, students can expect to be able to play some solo repertoire and orchestral excerpts as one might encounter in an audition.
