A unique Masters programme that focuses on creating embodied, integrated, vibrant musicians, equipped to thrive in the modern professional environment.
The aim is to finesse solo, chamber music, orchestral skills and audition preparation, whilst developing a greater awareness of the importance of the body, creativity and all-round musicianship. Students are invited to explore what it is they really want to say with their music, as they prepare to enter the profession.
The 2 yr programme is led by members of the Irish Chamber Orchestra (ICO) who rehearse, tutor and perform with the students. Former MA students are now members of the orchestra.
Students receive weekly 90-minute individual lessons, technique and performance skills classes, combined with intensive weekly classes in Dalcroze, Baroque, Chamber Music, Feldenkrais, Excerpts and Large Ensemble.
