About

 

C'est Bon Chamber Music Academy (pronounced say-bone) is a week-long chamber music program created by a group of the San Francisco Bay Area's leading music teachers in 2009 to provide chamber music training for pre-college musicians.

The academy program is designed to introduce the joy of chamber music to children as young as 3rd grade and to enhance collaborative skills for young musicians up to 12th grade.

We keep our academy uniquely small in order to create the most supportive and nurturing atmosphere possible. The week-long academy offers private lessons, master classes with guest artists, rhythm classes, guided rehearsals, and coaching. All activities will take place on the beautiful campus of Miramonte School in Los Altos, California.

It is our goal to maintain a fun, positive, and creative learning environment while sharing the joy and fulfillment of chamber music with the students. We hope to inspire every participant to achieve his or her highest potential.

C’est Bon Chamber Music Academy is a subsidiary of the Silicon Valley Youth Orchestra (SVYO), a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization. The mission of SVYO is to provide professional musical training for SVYO members to create a platform for the youth to showcase their talents, and to foster musical and cultural enrichment for the community.
