Throughout the school year, music students of all disciplines, ages, and levels may participate in performance prep/masterclasses with their peers. In taking advantage of these masterclass sessions, students can fine tune their performance skills and etiquette in a more relaxed environment. This is a less formal setting than recital performances at the end of each semester, and often serve as an invaluable “test-run” with classmates before performing in front of extended family and friends.
In these classes, students have the opportunity to discuss and practice proper performance etiquette (both as performers and audience members), as well as to develop their critical listening skills. Students learn to offer both praise and constructive feedback to their classmates based on their own music knowledge and training, as well as with help from the masterclass teacher.
In this unique setting, students also receive a mini-lesson and brief feedback from the masterclass teacher. Students will learn not only from the feedback they receive, but also by offering and listening to feedback offered to their classmates.
These collaborative music classes tend to be great motivators for the students. Participation allows them to observe and work with other students of many different learning levels, and to form connections with an extended group of students and teachers within the studio community.
