At the heart of the Recital & Masterclass Days are a series of masterclasses. These are run by the Academy staff and special guests. They are designed to allow students to present works in progress while receiving valuable coaching from acclaimed performers. Masterclasses are open to all parents, friends and members of the public who have a valid day pass.
Piano, violin with viola, and cello masterclasses will be run concurrently in the morning of the Recital & Masterclass Days from 9:30 to 12:00.
Selection to participate in instrumental masterclasses is by audition for advanced students of level grade 8+ and under 21 years of age. Each participant will receive at least 30 minutes of individual coaching in a group setting.
