Workshops & Masterclasses

Our workshop programme is continuous throughout the year – string quartets, wind quintets and various other small ensembles. In July 2019, our senior string quartet are attending a course in Conegliano near Venice. This is sponsored by the Belacqua Trust. We are extremely grateful for this support.

We are always happy to look back at all our masterclasses and workshops. We’re very proud of our successful workshop days so far this year and grateful to SoundStorm Music Agency for their continued support.

Thank you to Yarrell’s school for hosting our Brass and String days in April 2019.

Over the last couple of years we’ve run several very successful workshops and masterclasses with a wide range of age groups and abilities. Our last summer workshop included teachers from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and several local outstanding schools, including our very successful summer school in 2018.

In the summer of 2015 we started working with SoundStorm who have supported our workshops ever since. We are very grateful for their support, without which we would not have been able to run these events. We are also grateful to Wessex Young Musicians Trust for their workshop support.

Our main spring workshop days this year for Strings (8th April 2019), Brass (27th April 2019) and piano (23rd June 2019) include great opportunities for students to spend a whole day with some distinguished tutors. The strings have benefited from direction of Fiona Mclean-Beuchel who is head of Junior Strings at Trinity Laban London and other highly skilled specialists. We were thrilled to have collaborated with Kingston Music Service where Neil Thomas and colleagues have brought around 35 young brass players to join forces with our local students. It was an exciting day for all involved.

Some local young pianists benefitted from Béla Hartman’s superb masterclasses last year so we are priviliged to be hosting a whole day of piano activties for young pianists on 23rd June 2019, led by Béla. We hope that this will lead to more piano activities in Broadstone Music Series in the future!
