What We Do in WORKSHOP WEEK

The art of performance can pose a challenge for young musicians. The more we practice playing in front of others the easier it becomes. In Workshop classes, students of various levels gain confidence performing for each other in an intimate setting with peers and several teachers. We focus on techniques to ease anxiety, introduce relaxation methods, refine musicality and performance poise. Students listen constructively to each other and have an opportunity to share feedback about musical concepts. We learn how to actively listen to live music and reinforce vocabulary to talk about performance practices. Most importantly, our students see others facing the same challenges they experience, and they don’t feel alone in their lesson studies. This is a positive week in a safe environment, trying out performance material. Students with accompaniments have time to work with their accompanists. All students need goals like Workshops to improve. CONCERT LEVEL STUDENTS MUST ATTEND WORKSHOPS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR CONCERTS.
