Studies at CIM will prepare musicians to excel as a contemporary professional bassist.
Students in the Double Bass program of Cleveland Institute of Music participate in weekly private lessons and master classes conducted by international soloists. Students also have opportunities to take the stage and perform in solo recitals, orchestra concerts at Severance Hall and new music or chamber ensembles.
To prepare for professional orchestra auditions, students participate in CIM’s bass repertoire class. CIM’s small studio size creates a mutually supportive atmosphere for high-level bass playing.
The program is designed to develop advanced competencies and musicianship for the qualified student including advanced and refined technique, enhanced musical knowledge and skills, and increased ability to communicate artistically so as to demonstrate professional capability in the chosen area of concentration. Through their studies, students gain increased knowledge and skills in one of more fields of music outside the major such as music theory, history, musicology or performance practice. Students also gain increased knowledge of repertory and historical performance practice.
