This four-week course is the second part of the Musicianship for Performers Course (participants must have completed Part I). The course admits a small group of participants and is conducted online via Zoom. With emphasis on depth of musical understanding and individual development, students are guided through applying the course topics to their own repertoire. The course material is adapted to each participant’s repertoire, and is designed to challenge a wide range of abilities and levels.

Each of the four sessions will be dedicated to a specific topic, explored through a weekly class every Sunday at 3-5pm CET (2-4pm GMT), supported by group work, individual sessions, and three guest artist workshops. You will be guided in connecting what you learn to your own repertoire by Jenna Sherry (violinist, festival director, and teacher at School for Young Talent, Royal Conservatory in The Hague) and Prach Boondiskulchok (pianist, composer, and teacher at Royal College of Music Junior Department), alongside a group of mentors who are accomplished musicians. 

Time:
8 – 29 November 2020
Classes every Sunday 3-5pm CET (2-4pm UK)
With individual sessions and mentored group sessions to be scheduled to suit your needs.

Fee: £180 / €195 (application by invitation only to participants of Part I)

Programme

Each week starts with a 2-hour Lecture and Workshop on one of the topics above interspersed with practical small group exercises designed to develop your understanding of the topic and sharpen your musicianship.

You will also spend 60-90 minutes each week with your Study Group. This will be coached by a mentor, with the focus of working on your assignments and on applying new knowledge to your repertoire.

During the course, we will be joined by world-renowned Guest Artists who will give interactive workshops.

The course directors will be available for Questions and Extra Guidance throughout the week. By participating, you will also have access to all resources shared in past and future courses.
