This unique 2 yr Masters course is designed for gifted string players as the final step towards a professional career.
The aim is to finesse solo, chamber music, orchestral skills and audition preparation, whilst developing a greater awareness of the importance of the body, creativity and all-round musicianship. Students are invited to explore what it is they really want to say with their music, as they prepare to enter the profession.
The programme is led by members of the Irish Chamber Orchestra (ICO) who rehearse, tutor and perform with the students. Former MA students are now members of the orchestra.
Students receive weekly 90-minute individual lessons, technique and performance skills classes, combined with weekly intensive sessions in chamber music, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, creative embodied performance development, Improvisation, New music and baroque styles and real life requirements.
Online auditions taking place now for September 2022. Please contact the course director for further information firstname.lastname@example.org
