PRACTICE  & PERFORMANCE COACH
with Victoria Samek

So much of life is about performing to the best of our ability, whether it is on the concert platform, in an exam, or at an audition. In lessons new information and corrections must be processed, but it is when you are left to your own devices that the real work of consolidation begins. Practice and performance coaching guides the musician at whatever level, amateur or professional, in organising strategies and tools for practice that will ensure confidence and commitment in performance.

Fully illustrated and punctuated by live performance, Playing with Science is a series of bespoke lectures, tailored to the audience, that will inform and inspire. They are delivered with Victoria’s indomitable style and infectious enthusiasm.
