Masterclass in first term 2018-19

Hello everyone,

I have organised the first term MC’s. Our focus in the first term will be twofold: first, on standard duo repertoire (culminating in the November studio recital which will feature duos!) and secondly on technical development. Each week will hone in on a different key area, which will lead is toward the technical exam.

Master Class Schedule 2018-19

Focus: Standard Duo repertoire and technique development

All classes held in B037 unless otherwise noted.
