Technique Class(Cello/Violin):
A set of repertoire of different levels will be given in advance for the participants to prepare. It will be most beneficial to the students if they could learn these pieces by memory. Participants will be taught on the technical aspects of instrumental playing, how to improve it to a higher level and to perform the pieces for the final concerts. 

Orchestra:
A set of repertoire of different levels will be given in advance for the participants to prepare. 
Participants will be guided by an orchestra conductor on the orchestral technique to improve it to a higher level for performance during the gala concert. 

Chamber Music Program:
For participants with grade 5 & above, good technique & with more refined or mature tone. There will be an audition conducted for interested individual participants / chamber groups. A video performance of one music piece (not more than 10mins) must be submitted via youtube to the organiser for level settings & placement.

Improvisation Classes:
This class is a hands-on exploration of proven approaches and techniques for the development of creativity in our playing. We will connect improvisation to our early repertoire experiences and use games to build layers of improvisation technique. We’ll “think outside the box” inspiring studies of creativity, music theory, composition and musical expression. Students will play with song forms, melodic and harmonic structures, sound effects and free improvisation to create their own performances, or in a word - improvise!
Participants in Elementary level or above are to select either Orchestra classes or Improvisation Classes as part of the curriculum in the Conference.
