Peer Mentoring Thrives at Conservatory Lab
On Thursday, four Dudamel Orchestra musicians travelled to the lower school to spend an hour peer mentoring 1st grade musicians. Fifth grade violinists Ethan Chen and Sergine Muzac worked with Resident Artist Ms. Amidon with all the upper strings and then each worked one on one with individual 1st grade violinists improving their technique. Oliver Lee, 5th grade bassist, also worked with several individual students, giving them feedback on posture, bow holds and how to make a great tone.
Junior Fuentes, 5th grade cellist, worked with pairs of students on Hot Cross Buns and keeping their bows “on the highway”.
