In Master Classes, students play a solo piece in a practice performance setting and receive comments on their work. Performance classes like these are incredibly helpful for students to gain experience and confidence performing solo works in a supportive environment. These classes are informative for students participating, as well as students and parents observing. Students are encouraged to memorize their pieces for Master Classes
Master Classes are discounted at $20 for intermediate and advanced DUSS students who are enrolled in private lessons (ISO, CSO, and YS levels). If there are spaces available, DUSS ensemble-only students can also participate for a $30 fee. These classes are scheduled on select Saturdays, typically from 2:00-3:30 in Bone Hall or in a classroom with a stage. To see the calendar with a list of these dates, click HERE.
Students can request to play in a Master Class through their private teacher, so talk to your teacher to find out when you can play in one of these classes!
