Master Classes and Workshops

teaching1

I offer master classes and workshops for conservatories, music schools, festivals, universities, early keyboard societies and other organizations. Introduction to early keyboard instruments (clavichord, square piano, Viennese fortepiano, Cristofori fortepiano): I can come to you with my instrument(s), or use instruments you provide.

Duration: an afternoon, a day, a weekend, a week, several times a semester…it’s up to you! For all levels, beginning to advanced, and for all ages. A typical presentation:

  • short demonstration on each instrument
  • historical information
  • technical information (pedals, knee levers, actions, etc.)
  • iconography
  • listening to recordings of similar instruments
  • each participant has one or more opportunities to play the instrument(s)
  • explanation of four-hands and chamber repertoire
  • an informal concert given by participants

I generally give a recital at the beginning or end of a master class or workshop. Contact me for further information.
