We now introduce a new lesson style, the daily master class, which is intended to be a more economic lesson format which will greatly improve the student's experience through synergies:
- One teacher, 2 to 4 students
- One well known piece of theremin music
Every student prepares the pre-announced piece of theremin music. The teacher will work with one student after the other, always only one student at a time while the other master class participants listen and benefit from passive learning.
Working in such a small group will at the same time help the students to prepare for performing in public and for attending more sophisticated master classes later.
A chamber music class groups students of similar playing level in order to study one or more pieces in a trio or quartet formation, guided and conducted by a teacher.
- One teacher, 3 to 4 participants
- Duration 2 or 3 sessions
Occasionally, chamber music classes will continue their work on more complex music over several academies.
A workshop is, like a group lesson, about a specific, but more practical topic, i.e. the use of effect pedals. The participants learn and exchange under the supervision of a teacher.
- One teacher, 3 to 6 students
A lecture is basically an ex-cathedra teaching about a specific topic of one ore more teachers, followed by question time and, optionally, a public discussion. That's why we'll most times use the term “Seminar”.
- One or more teachers, unlimited and unrestricted audience
- Duration 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the topic
A group lesson is always about a specific topic, i.e. improvisation and is given for students sharing the same interest but having different playing levels.
- One teacher, 3 to 6 students (depends on the topic and available rooms)
The “classic” one to one lesson:
The student prepares one or more pieces of music or a specific topic (i.e. vibrato) to work on with the teacher during the lesson.
