Join us online for a set of three interactive Zoom workshops for professional musicians working in all genres, delivered by the world’s premier solo percussionist, Dame Evelyn Glennie.
In this series of professional development workshops, Evelyn will discuss self-motivation for performers, key listening skills, and how to adapt to stay relevant as your career evolves. Musicians will have the opportunity to engage with Evelyn, ask questions and learn from a world class artist.
Workshop 1: Self-Motivation – Monday 10 May 11am – 12:30pm
What inspires us and motivates us to practise? Is there a right and wrong way to practise? This session will explore fresh approaches to practise and improvisation, including advice on how to reconnect with your instrument through exploration of range and timbre.
Workshop 2: Who’s Listening? – Tuesday 11 May 11am – 12:30pm
How do we listen to ourselves objectively? This session will reflect on the art of listening, both from the perspective of the performer and the audience. Evelyn will explore topics such as the usefulness of self-appraisal and self-criticism, what the audience will hear, and how musicians can provide the best listening experience for their audience.
Workshop 3: Ring in the Changes – Wednesday 12 May 11am – 12:30pm
How do musicians keep motivated in their careers when all around us has changed? This session will offer advice for musicians on adapting your career as you progress. Evelyn will also explore how audiences have changed over time, and how musicians can remain relevant as artists.
Please note, this is a professional development course for professional musicians working in all genres. Ticket holders must be available to attend all 3 workshops. Places are limited to 30.
