Special presenters Angela Turner & Thembi Shears
ANGELA TURNER – In this session with Angela Turner, be the first to see the new Exploring Repertoire series, edited and compiled by Angela. Published in Australia, this series incorporates both classical and contemporary sound worlds, is suitable for use within different examination syllabi, and provides a framework for further exploration. Angela will discuss ways to develop and encourage a student’s understanding through repertoire, by embedding aspects of aural development, harmony and transposition, analysis and composition, improvisation, ensemble work, general musicianship and technique. This session will focus on early level repertoire (Preliminary/Grade 1.)
THEMBI SHEARS – Have you ever thought about running a Piano Camp but weren’t quite sure where to start? There are many benefits not only to your students, but to the image and business of your studio, and of course to your bank balance! Come and discuss the logistics of planning, advertising and running a camp, and explore a range of games and activities to use with different age groups.
