Students have a special opportunity to perform for a group of students and receive valuable feedback from Miss. Leslie Ashworth in a Performance Master Class. The Performance Master Class is highly recommended for students completing remote RCM examinations and also for students looking for more performance opportunities; getting valuable feedback on how to improve their performance.
Master Class Time: Thursday 3pm-4pm (1 hour)
This Master Class is open to all students and will include a variety of instruments: piano, violin, voice etc. This master class is open to both current and new students.
Participating students will prepare 1 to 2 pieces to perform for the Master Class through ZOOM. Students are asked to prepare their music in the same way as their examination (memorized) and polished.
We look forward to making music with you!
