NVYW Rehearsals


NVYW is currently rehearsing online, Mondays at 6:45pm. As circumstances allow, we will return to in-person rehearsals at McLean HS. Interested new members may attend one online rehearsal at no cost.

Online Structure

NVYW utilizes a unique content design that works to maximize the potential of video-conference ensemble playing. 

The design allows members to experience two critical components of an in-person rehearsal: playing in unison with another on the same part, while simultaneously hearing a full ensemble. 

In an NVYW virtual rehearsal, members play great band works and selections from other genres. They are engaged playing their instrument throughout the full rehearsal and are coached on pitch, technical challenges, stylistic nuances, and ensemble sensitivity in real time. Most importantly, members find the process fun!

Rehearsal Materials

NVYW offers its online rehearsal materials freely to any who would find them useful. Any school music teachers who are interested in observing how the materials are used can email info-nvyw@fairfaxband.org to request admission to an online rehearsal or to ask questions.
