PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP WITH GRAHAM FITCH – JUST RELEASED
The focus for Graham’s course is on developing performance skills, including memorisation, practising towards a performance, aspects of style (Baroque and Classical styles especially), technique and overcoming nerves and anxiety. In advance of the course, each student is encouraged to practice a few pieces so that, over the course of the weekend session, they begin to feel happy performing in front of the group.
This course is designed for people who have reached a good (grade 5 – 8) standard. In many cases, our students haven’t played for a few years and in some cases may not have access to the piano. If this is the case, you are welcome to attend the course a little earlier in the day on Friday, to give yourself time to get back into the swing of it.
Each day typically starts with a workshop in the Finchcocks cellars. In the afternoons, there is time for private practice on one of our beautiful acoustic grand pianos and individual tuition from one of our teachers. In the later afternoon, we convene for a masterclass, which involves a little bit of (very relaxed) performance in front of your classmates. At 7pm we have our pre-dinner talk or recital in the main house, which is a chance to relax and be inspired, before returning to the Coach House for dinner.
This course is being run by Graham Fitch.
