Masterclasses and Performance Workshops

These 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 Chi-Chi Nwanoku, Mahan Esfahani, Michael Chance, Jonathon Heyward, Sian Edwards, Richard Egarr, Sir Mark Elder, Ketil Haugsand, Steven Isserlis, Andrew Kennedy, Joanna MacGregor, Nicholas Mulroy, Sir Roger Norrington, Verity Sharp, Jeremy West and many other significant performers.

Collaborations with CMPS and CRASSH have resulted in masterclasses with Richard Goode, Roy Howat, Yundi Li, Robert Levin and Angela Hewitt.
