Morning workshops

At the beginning of each day, students on all the courses come together to participate in a unique sequence of activities which collectively stimulate self-awareness and enhance creativity.

Pulse Training - by Stephen Keogh

Pulse lies at the heart of music, and developing one's own inner pulse is the goal of these sessions. The work fosters awareness – of the pulse, of silence, of the other members of the group. This workshop is hugely beneficial to musicians of every kind.

Vocal and Body - Guillermo Rozenthuler

The workshop explores the use of energy and the voice, and fine tuning body and mind coordination within a musical context. Using song material from all around the world we work at enhancing the quality of our listening skills and the sounds we produce.

Ear Training - Garrison Fewell

Ear Training is a process of developing the skills to recognize melody, rhythm and harmony. For all musicians, the inner ear is the most important instrument. To be able to hear a melody with your mind's ear and imagine how it sounds with a certain chord, to be able to apply different rhythmic and metric patterns to melody and bass lines, to hear musical form and harmonic progressions - these are essential aspects of a a musician's life as a composer or performer.

In ear training, we work on developing the connection between the inner ear and the instrument, between sound and how it is notated, between notation and how it sounds. The voice is an expression of the inner musical spirit and singing is the most direct way to hear and play better, and to interact more creatively with other musicians. When teaching ear training, musicians are encouraged to develop confidence in their ears, to decipher the sound of music and to use that confidence to be a better musician... or simply to be a better listener.
