CPD-LG1.22 Rehearsal Room
These one-year courses provide students with the opportunity to develop their musicianship and perform in public. The coordinator offers the students advice in choosing repertoire, helps them plan their rehearsals and performances, and invites both local and overseas visitors to conduct two-hour masterclasses. The students offer two public recitals, one in the Autumn semester and one in the Spring; attend all masterclasses; write programme notes for their chosen pieces; and discuss their selection of works with the course coordinator. Repertoire changes every year and reflects the students’ abilities as well as interests. Places in this course are limited and admission is by audition.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • improve performance skills and explore the historical dimension and interpretive challenges of the chosen repertory;
  • develop the skills to engage in collaborative music-making.
