Seminars will be a mix of: 

Student Presentations and Discussions

Students will give short oral presentations on a favorite piece from the standard repertoire and point out why they think a certain section of a particular piece is effective. 

As a group we then discuss what we are noticing in the score that makes this work successful or meaningful, then brainstorm how students can apply these strategies to their craft.


Craft & Career Seminars on different topics
