Masterclasses offer students an invaluable insight into the musicianship, performance skills and technical expertise of some of the world's most celebrated performers. Participants and listeners find the experience inspirational and stimulating, both musically and intellectually.
Performance students are able to attend public and internal masterclasses in addition to regular performance workshops run by the Director of Performance, Margaret Faultless and guests.
In the Practising Performance series, the Faculty of Music has hosted classes with Steven Isserlis, Sir Mark Elder, Sir Roger Norrington , Richard Egarr, Andrew Kennedy, Michael Chance, Nicholas Mulroy, Ross Duffin, Ketil Haugsand, Jeremy West and many other significant performers.
Collaborations with CMPCP and CRASSH have resulted in masterclasses with Richard Goode, Roy Howat, Yundi Li, Robert Levin and, most recently, with Angela Hewitt.
