  • Class format and activities

    At the start of each session, students are allocated equal individual time-slots to work on their chosen repertoire with the tutor and the accompanist of the class. Focus of work is on interpretation of the song: relationship between the text and music, between the vocal and piano line, pronunciation of the German language, interpretation of performance markings. The rest of the group participates in peer feedback and questions. Assessment Methods: There is an end-of-term informal performance of students’ chosen repertoire. The tutor will communicate details about this performance well in advance, and agree with the students which songs they will perform. In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular and detailed feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
