How many times can I expect to play?
Each participant will play 4 – 5 times in masterclasses. Technique classes are also held. There is also the possibility of performing on one of the recitals.
Will the classes be recorded?
Yes, classes will be recorded, but you are welcome to set up your own device to have access right away.
Where can I practice?
Ample practice facilities are available in the music building adjacent to Pick-Staiger. Practicing is generally not permitted in the dorms.
Will there be a pianist?
Yes. An accompanist will be provided for all classes and recitals. Rehearsal time is available, but time is somewhat limited.
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. (Please note: parking in the adjacent garage requires a daily permit.)
Do I get free strings and bow rehairs?
Uh… sorry, no.
