Aural Workshops

Hosted by Tracy Rose
Every Saturday at 1pm BST/UTC+1
 
Free live online ABRSM Aural Workshops - Music Lessons Anywhere
 
For beginner to intermediate levels. These regular Workshops include all kinds of listening skills. We can also cover aural exercises from a variety of exam boards.
 
Tracy covers what you want to practise, providing a chance for exam students to try out aural exercises before the exam. If you are not an exam student but would like to try out any of the Aural Workshops, ask your teacher what Grade/Level Workshop would be suitable for you. Listening skills are at the heart of all good music-making. Developing aural awareness is fundamental to musical training, because having a ‘musical ear’ impacts on all aspects of musicianship.
 

 

The girls loved it and having classmates taking the same lesson with them while they are sitting in another continent was exciting. It was as good as having a teacher in front of them in class, if not better, the girls progress and grades just proves that.”

Upcoming Special Music Workshops

 

Stephie’s Online Performance Practise Workshop

Hosted by Stephie Kouloris
Friday 30th October at 6pm GMT/UTC
 
Live online Practise Performance Workshop online piano performance
 
All are are welcome to participate, playing any instrument or voice, performing a complete work (or segment of) or more from the Classical / Contemporary repertoire. Or you may simply attend the workshop listening to other participants and sharing as an audience member. 
 
For exam candidates, this might be a good opportunity to present 1 or more completed works (testing LH by memory, speed/velocity, style/genre, technique, interpretation, audience appeal and overall presentation).
 
Stephie says,
 
“The theme for this workshop is influences:

  1. To discuss the piece you have chosen to play, looking at the socio-economic/political arena of the time. How is the composer and the composer’s writing influenced by his environment?
  2. To discuss the composer’s artistic influences. How did a mentor/guide/contemporary influence the composer’s writing and how does this influence translate into the music performed?”

 
 

Music Psychology and Perception Workshop

Hosted by Steph Acaster
Date and time to be confirmed
 
Music Psychology and Perception Worksop live online - Music Lessons Anywhere
 
Your host, Steph Acaster, is one of our students taking theory lessons with Stephie.
 
The first Workshop explored the physical/biological approach to how people actually hear sounds and music, or relate perception/cognition in the brain with music/theory. We also touched on music performance psychology, a large area to explore.
 
Steph will continue with more online Workshops for music discussion group meetings, focusing on Music Psychology & Perception.
 
This Workshop is open to both adult students and also our teachers.
 
Steph is currently working as an online tutor in Psychology and Maths. Over the last 5 years, she has completed a Psychology-based PhD, specialising in visual perception research. During this time, Steph also began to study music, reaching Grade 7 in violin and Grade 8 in music theory. These two interests have led to her developing a curiosity in the perception and psychological experiences associated with music.

While connected, they can discuss practice tips, analyse the music in detail, talk about the composer, and play the piece for each other.
 

“The Sight Reading Workshop was extremely helpful and I learnt a lot from it. I definitely gained experience and confidence from the well taught sight reading lesson. I would recommend this to anyone with an exam coming up or anyone who just needs help.”
