Masterclasses

Coaching for performance is a particular pleasure for me.  I have an extensive knowledge of opera and classical song in Italian, German, French and English, and am also at home in other lyrical styles such as music theatre and folksong.

 

I offer Masterclasses in central Cambridge on selected weekend afternoons during term time. The classes are designed to train singers  in presentation, stage deportment, dramatic understanding and interpretation of songs and arias.  A professional pianist accompanies the singers. The classes provide an excellent opportunity to gain performing experience in a supportive, environment. Performers are charged a moderate tuition fee.  A great deal can also be learned from observing others. Observers are welcome at no cost.

 

Each two-hour session gives six singers the opportunity to perform a piece of their choice to colleagues and observers. I then work closely with each singer on specific aspects of presentation. Singers may present operatic arias, art songs, oratorio, music theatre pieces, jazz or traditional songs.  There are also opportunities for suitable singers to perform in ensembles or short operatic scenes.

 

All music must be well prepared in advance and performed from memory.  An exception may be made for oratorio, if the music is very well known and use of the score is minimal.
