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?

This series of workshops for July and August is the first part of a long-term project. Many further workshops focusing on different techniques, and for all ages and stages will be presented over the rest of 2020. A new series of workshops will be delivered each month, with sign up opening mid-way through the previous month. July and August have been announced together as a Summer series.
