What is NCCMI?
NCCMI is an organized serious program for small ensembles, with many performance opportunities. Proven to build leadership and musical skills, it is fun, challenging and engaging with the whole community. Chamber music is hands-down THE best way for young musicians to learn their craft. Composers like Beethoven and Shostakovich created many of their masterpieces for small ensembles of 4 players called string quartets. Fast forward to the jazz era, and we see jazz combos of 4 instruments. Whatever the style, THIS is chamber music.
- Coaching by top classically trained professionals.
- Unique musical and leadership training in small ensembles.
