The Musicfest Aberystwyth Summer School 2022 Trumpet Course is a great opportunity to improve your playing through an exciting week of classes exploring a variety of aspects of performing. We welcome applications from all trumpet players over the age of 16 on July 1st 2022 and of minimum ABRSM Grade 7 standard, though numbers may have to be limited. The course will run from Monday to Friday 10-12:30 and 2-5 comprising a variety of elements which may include orchestral, solo and trumpet ensemble repertoire and technique classes. We will explore topics such as practice methods and performance practice with the chance to work with resident pianist Edward Leung.
Applicants are invited to prepare two solo pieces. One further piece of baroque music would be welcomed as we will explore the natural trumpet and interpretation of baroque repertoire from a historically informed perspective. Repertoire choices should be submitted to Joan Rowlands, mailto:email@example.com our Administrator, by July 1st.
Over the lunch break participants will have the opportunity to attend a lunchtime concert in the Great Hall, as well as a masterclass featuring a different discipline each day.
