I’m thrilled to announce the launch of some online mini-courses for the fall!!
While we all wait for the chance to play together again, this time apart has created a unique opportunity for me to work with you by offering focused seminars to help you build your musical knowledge and develop your musicianship and technique.
Over the summer, I saw how applied music techniques helped players at all levels become adept at applying their new knowledge to playing and appreciating music. With this in mind, I’ve continued to develop a roster of courses, mini-courses, and seminars to create opportunities for us to grow as musicians in this unusual time.
I will be offering SIX practical, info-packed mini-courses covering all kinds of exciting topics. As you will see below, you can enrol in the entire mini-course series for a special rate, or you can mix and match to select just the areas that are of particular interest.
Where: On Zoom!
From the comfort of your favourite chair at home.
When: LIVE - Tuesday evenings,
September 22nd to December 8th, 5-6 pm, EST.
How to register:
• Send me an email with your course selections
• Send an e-transfer to my email address
1. Chamber Music 101 - September 22 and 29
A potpourri of interesting and useful information about this highly specialized art form. We are all going to be delving into this world for a while, so this is the perfect time to learn a bit about it (other than learning the notes, of course!).
2. Perfect Practice - October 6 and 13
A plan for effectiveness and effeciency!
3. Mind over Music - October 20 and 27
The MENTAL side of it all! We’ll talk about things like nervous butterflies, passages we dread, and how to make it all a bit easier.
4. Tuning Terror! - November 3 and 10
Unraveling the mysteries…
5. Sight-reading Sweep - November 17 and 24
Play any piece (almost) right the first time.
6. Conducting 101 - December 1 and 8
An introduction to the podium. Even if you never plan to conduct, it’s hugely important to know what goes on ‘on the other side of the baton’.
