"The exchange of energy between performer and audience…
can make all the difference in elevating the level of the performance from something that is merely good
to something that is extraordinary”
- Jessye Norman, Soprano

Training & Skills Development
Playing with expectations
Music Hubs / Music Services
We work closely with Music Hubs and Music Services to support the continuing professional development of musicians, employees and teaching staff.
We can offer bespoke opportunities, including:
In-house training days
By cascading our methodologies from staff teams and teachers to students, we are able to provide fresh ideas and skills development that impact on the performance of thousands of young musicians each year. Enhanced confidence and competence ensures young musicians are more likely to take pleasure in their performances, and to stick with an instrument over the longer term.

Peripatetic Music Teachers
We understand the challenges of working as a peri, and offer workshops that enable teachers to feel refreshed, connected and inspired, with lots of new ideas to take back into their lessons.
The skills that young musicians learn during their journey as a student stay with them throughout their development. Improving their confidence in connecting with audiences alongside their technical competence as players enhances their enjoyment of their instruments.
Through our Arts Council funded Pitch Pace Perform project, we reached xxx peripatetic teachers, who in turn have utilised our methodologies in their teaching of thousands of students.
We are eager to support as many teachers and young musicians as we can.

After taking part in a session for conservatoire students;
100% considered stage presence to be important in a successful performance
Over 80% said they would change how they perform as a result of the session
98% felt they had learned transferable skills
"It's so useful to take yourself out of the equation and think purely about connection with audience"
"We’ve had so many talks at college around performance anxiety and how we don’t like to perform and how we could overcome that. This is the first time I’ve been to a workshop where it’s embracing the performance and really enjoying it"
An exceptional performance is more than just performing the right notes well. Musicians need to pay attention to who their audience is, and have the necessary skills to communicate effectively.
We offer specialist workshops for conservatoires, helping students to gain confidence in their skillset and pleasure in delivering dynamic performances that truly connect. Our tuition can support their performance in recitals and exams, as well as providing an enduring skillset for their future careers.
Recent academic partners include the Royal Northern College of Music, the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Live Music Now.
Sessions for conservatoires cost from £500, and we may have funding to support your visit.
