All courses will cover these six categories with a range of topics within…

Repertoire …from pieces to studies and exercises, and an agenda of repertoire for warmups to selecting a recital, exam or audition programme. Repertoire is our resource.

Chris delivers a practical session on how to decipher a jazz lead sheet

Technical… from facility, agility and reliability, via fingering dependability, clarity and speed of articulation, to breath sustainability and stamina. Ever extending technical prowess.

Musicianship…from essential theory to its practical integration within practice and performance; from interpretation to applying musical intention. Musicianship is the essence of a musician.

Guests Renowned players, voices from academia, technical specialists and composers. Guests will encompass excellence and diversity.

Knowledge Nuggets …from companies introducing new products, books and resources to artists sharing an insight, a discovery, or new initiatives within education or fitness advice. Knowledge in nuggets!

Science and Creativity …from theories and concepts in performance science that give reason and understanding, to the appropriate integration of intuitive spontaneity. Science and creativity in partnership.

With practice and performance firmly on the agenda, enjoy a taster of what you can expect!
