Bring a member of the Orchestra or Chorale to your rehearsal!
Need a coach or clinician visit to give your students a boost in confidence and style for an upcoming performance, festival, or jury? Request a specialist from the Orchestra or Chorale to coach your ensemble’s baroque, classical, or early romantic repertoire in progress. PBO’s Mobile Mentors would be delighted to offer stylistic suggestions, provide historic perspective about early composers and compositions, demonstrate important elements of performance practice, and offer practical advice about ensemble playing or singing.
A Mobile Mentor’s visit may be up to three consecutive hours in duration and a Mentor may work with multiple music ensembles on a single day. This program is ongoing throughout the school year, and is appropriate for musicians of all ability levels, from beginners to pre-professionals. Scheduling priority will be given to large ensembles. PBO is able to provide this service at no charge for a limited number of schools.
Apply HERE for a Mobile Mentor for the 2016-17 season/school year.
