What is it?
Our instrumental clinics are open to all non-professional instrumentalists of any age, whether enthusiastic amateurs or budding students. Participants should bring along a one piece of music (with or without accompaniment) and they will have the opportunity to spend 20 minutes working on it one-on-one with one of our internationally renowned musicians. Perhaps you would like to work on the stylistic and technical challenges that come with playing Bach, or how to prepare for an audition? Or maybe you’d just like the chance to play one-on-one with one of the Dunedin Consort regulars.
These sessions focus on building confidence, working on technical challenges and looking at how to deepen musical understanding, all in a friendly and supportive environment.
Who are they led by?
Each session is led by one of our renowned international musicians.
When are they?
We’ll be announcing details for our next instrumental clinics for the 2021/22 season shortly.
These sessions are free of charge. Each performer will be allocated a 20-minute slot to look at a piece of music of their choice, or to work on a particular aspect of their instrumental technique.
When you apply, we will ask you to specify the repertoire you would like to work on during the session. Participants are generally encouraged to bring music from within Dunedin Consort’s core repertoire (i.e. from the Renaissance, Baroque or Classical periods), but later repertoire can be accommodated, where appropriate.
How to Apply
We’ll provide a link to apply once we’ve announced the dates and details of the next clinics.
