Performance classes

A student group taking part in a performance workshop with a member of Department Ensemble-in-Residence, Quatuor Diotima

All students, teachers and staff are welcome to attend the sessions, which are free. If you have any questions or suggestions for classes you’d like to see happening, please contact Liz Haddon:

Please note, there are ‘vocal’ and ‘instrumental’ sessions, but anyone is free to go to anything – singers are welcome at the instrumental sessions, and instrumentalists welcome at the vocal ones. Some classes take the form of workshops and offer the chance to participate to everyone who turns up (for example, African drumming); others are more like a masterclass and require those wanting to participate as performers to sign up in advance. However, there will be the chance to observe at all sessions – active participation is strongly encouraged, and it’s usually more fun than watching!

Some classes have sign-up sheets for participants to register, particularly those where the leader will work with a certain number of students. These will be available online, sent to students as an email link. Information will be posted on the board at the top of the stairs in the music department main building.
