MINI VIRTUAL SESSIONS
WHAT ARE THEY?
The Mini Virtual Sessions are short, focused workshops designed to provide in depth and detailed exploration on a wide variety of topics. There will be separate sessions for young people, music students, teachers and adult learners.
These workshops will be in the form of practical sessions concentrating on technique, physicality and wellbeing, as well as discussion sessions and a focus on personal and professional development for students and teachers.
HOW OFTEN DO THEY RUN?
A new series of sessions will be delivered each month with sign-up opening mid-way through the previous month. October's Mini Sessions are now open for sign up.
HOW ARE THE WORKSHOPS TAUGHT?
All workshops are taught through Zoom. All participants are asked to agree to an online code of conduct when you sign up, and to read and agree to our policies
HOW DO I KNOW IF THE WORKSHOP IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Playing level recommendations are only recommendations - this should not stop you signing up to any workshop you feel you would benefit from.
