2017 BMI Fall Masterclasses

BMI Classes have student enrollment limit to ensure quality learning environment. We encourage students to register as soon as possible to secure their placements. For those students who register more than one class will qualify for a partial scholarshipThe 2018 Spring schedule will be announced late September.

 

Intensive Masterclass style:

All masterclasses will be intensive classes with a small group of aspiring students for highly concentrated study. 

While the BMI guest artists work individually with each student, the others will be able to absorb more information effectively in a short period of time, through observation. Playing time will be divided equally.

 

 

Intensive Masterclass Topics include:

  •  Preparing for auditions and competitions.

  • Effective fingerings and bowings.

  • The BMI experts will work on development of individual sound, style, and interpretations with special attention given to technical problems.

  • Professional music career advice and consultations.

  • The BMI experts will provide feedback and share their extensive experience and tips/tricks.

  • Working on essential technique, score-reading, and interpretation of solo repertoire.

  • Advice for working with and within an orchestra, and with a conductor.  

     *Masterclass format with five to seven students limit.
