How many times can I expect to play?
With the reduced schedule this year each participant will play 4 times in masterclasses. There is also the possibility of performing on an online recital.
Will the classes be recorded?
Yes, classes will be recorded on Zoom, but the audio quality is not ideal.
Where can I practice?
Ha! (living room, kitchen, basement…)
Will there be a pianist?
Normally, yes, but not this year.
Do I have to attend all of the classes?
Much of the benefit of a workshop like this is to hear what all of the teachers have to say to other students. It is strongly recommended that you attend as much as possible, but attendance is not mandatory. During a class in which you are playing, you may leave class in advance of your time to warm up.
My parents want to come to listen, do they have to pay to get in?
No. Your parents may attend without charge.
Do I get free strings and bow rehairs?
Uh… sorry, no.
