The development of specialised performance skills in music through individual tuition and workshops.
The aim of the paper is to develop the technical and interpretative skills of musicians wishing to be performers. Students receive an individual weekly lesson and are required to attend weekly classes for their instrument, as well as workshops for all performance students. Instrumental applicants are normally expected to be approximately at Grade Eight standard (ABRSM, TCL, NZMEB). Tuition is usually available in piano, violin, viola, cello, voice, organ and some woodwind and brass instruments, as well as bagpipes and Scottish drumming.
