What is it?
Our instrumental clinics are open to all non-professional instrumentalists of any age, whether enthusiastic amateurs or budding students. Participants should bring along a one piece of music (with or without accompaniment) and they will have the opportunity to spend 20 minutes working on it one-on-one with one of our internationally renowned musicians. Perhaps you would like to work on the stylistic and technical challenges that come with playing Bach, or how to prepare for an audition? Or maybe you’d just like the chance to play one-on-one with one of the Dunedin Consort regulars.
These sessions focus on building confidence, working on technical challenges and looking at how to deepen musical understanding, all in a friendly and supportive environment.
Who are they led by?
Each session will be led by one of our renowned musicians. This year, participants will work with David Blackadder (brass).
These sessions are free of charge. Each performer will be allocated a 20-minute slot to look at a piece of music of their choice, or to work on a particular aspect of their instrumental technique.
Our next clinics with David Blackadder will take place in March 2021, with precise details published on the website later this year.
Who else can come along?
These sessions are open to the public, so even if you don’t want to take part, you are welcome to sit in and listen. Similarly, if you apply and we are unable to offer you a session, please think about coming along to hear our professionals working with the other performers.
If you have any questions regarding the Voice Clinics, please email our Learning & Participation Manager, Lucia Capellaro on email@example.com.
