Students also learn some essential music theory to improve their overall understanding of the fundamentals of music. A teacher recommendation is required.
Students are encouraged to bring their own group, but will be matched with other students of similar age and development if registering individually. Ensembles can be supplemented with a USC student music mentors with chamber music experience if needed.
