THE MASTERCLASS METHOD
Masterclasses allow students to showcase their hard work in a highly individualized manner. In this motivating and encouraging setting, students are able to work on a myriad of areas not limited to tone development, technique, vibrato, intonation tools, practice techniques, performance practice, and stage presence among others. Students are left with a new outlook and thought-provoking perspective on their given repertoire and overall musical endeavors. Andreas' teaching philosophy is focused on Courage, Compassion, and Connection.
Masterclasses can be held in-person or virtually.
Masterclasses can be held as half-day and full-day events, depending on the number of students and schedule of events.
Masterclasses can be held as both individual and group setting workshops.
Students can choose to focus on repertoire not limited to solo repertoire, orchestral excerpts, and etudes. By doing so, masterclasses are able to cover a wide range of flute topics not limited to articulation, sound projection, tone quality, vibrato, interpretive tools, and performance practice among others.
WHAT ARE SCHOOLS SAYING?
Thank you again for sharing your time and energy with us. Your playing--and choice of music--was most impressive and inspiring! I enjoyed watching you quickly diagnose challenges, and lead the students toward level-appropriate solutions in the limited amount of time available. And I loved your analogies and sense of humor. Student reactions showed engagement, and I am looking forward to the "debrief" next
Thanks again for sharing the passion!
