Elaine Fassi | Fine Arts
Hi! My name is Elaine Fassi. I teach Instrumental Music. We offer a comprehensive instrumental program. Our program is designed to accommodate each student at her ability level, Beginning, Intermediate, or Advanced. As a member of an instrumental music class, each student is a part of a group that will grow to depend on each other to perform her part to the fullest level of her ability.
The Rosati-Kain High School Instrumental Music Program has many ensembles that serve as the base groups for all other participation in the program. Each of these is a class in the school curriculum and the students perform at a high level.
Students will be provided both small and large group orchestral experiences following basic instruction on a particular instrument. Practice and instruction are the basis of this class.
Prerequisites: basic playing ability on an instrument or desire to begin playing a different instrument. Students may enroll in this course more than one year.
Students will be provided both small and large group orchestral experiences for those who are sufficiently beyond the beginner level.
Prerequisites: intermediate to advanced knowledge and skill on a particular instrument. Membership is by audition only. If studying privately, a dated letter from music teacher describing the level of ability as well as length of study with this teacher is required. Students must have their own instrument approved by instructor, or rent from Nottelmann Music Company. Students may enroll in this course more than one year. Students will be provided both small and large group experiences. Independent musicianship and working cooperatively in an ensemble are emphasized. This is a performing ensemble; students are required to perform in the Christmas and Spring concerts.
