Saturday the 30th of March - 13:00-15:00 GMT
Who is this for?... Any performer working in any style on any instrument or voice as a soloist or ensemble wanting to discuss their playing, singing, and interpretation, and to receive evaluative feedback. Anybody who would rather not submit their own performing but who would be interested in how to refine the ability to evaluate their own performing or the performing of others. Anybody wanting to ask questions about any aspect of performance. This webinar is for performers of all levels. You may have started quite recently and are wanting to check out that good early habits are in place. Or you might have been playing for years, wanting to look at the finer points of interpretation. You may be working on your own or with a teacher. You may be preparing for an exam, an audition, or a performance. Share your performance and hear what others are doing. All participants will be invited to comment positively, and Gareth will give helpful feedback. Gareth is an experienced performer, having played as a soloist and accompanist all over the world. His involvement has embraced Cathedral music, and work with the BBC. He has released various recordings and has played on National Radio stations. He was one of the youngest recipients of the Fellowship Diploma, has 40 years experience as a teacher, and 30 years experience as an ABRSM examiner.
