The Joy of Performing: Performance and Audition Class for Winds:
Learning to Constructively Self-Evaluate with Brian Diehl
Come take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn about performance in a fun and supportive environment! This class is for middle school and high school students who are already taking lessons on their instrument and are looking for further opportunities to discover the fun in performing. Classes will be led by trombonist Brian Diehl, who absolutely loves to perform! Mr. Diehl is a twenty-year veteran of the IMSCC faculty and professional musician with thirty years experience performing.
Classes will be tailored to reflect specific enrollment and individual needs, and will include both performance and discussion. Think of a piece you would love to perform, and provide piano music prior to start of classes. Chosen pieces can be of varied lengths and difficulties, but should be well within your playing level. Pieces should be studied and learned prior to the start of class.
What more perfect way can you think of to gain experience and become comfortable performing in front of other people, and to learn to really love sharing your music with other people!
