Music Masterclass from Chetham’s School of Music

chethams visit.jpgOn 6th March 2018, our A Level Music students were lucky enough to take part in a workshop and masterclass with Martyn Shaw, Head of Woodwind from the prestigious Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester. He was also accompanied by 4 current students at the school, who performed for our students. 

The purpose of the workshop particularly focused on communication and how students could convey a composers intentions as well as their own interpretation within a performance.

Students Jennifer Warwicker and Jack Dunning performed in front of both the Greenhead and Chetham’s musicians, and Martyn, along with the group gave feedback and helpful advice to prepare them for their final recitals.

Greenhead’s A Level Music cohort will perform for their final recitals on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th March 2018, and you can see them perform on the Tuesday evening at St. Paul’s Hall for our Spring Concert. Tickets are available for £3 from the Music and Finance Offices in college.
