MasterPeaces Master Class with Suzanne Teng - 9am-3pm
The Zermatt Resort
Midway, Utah
Price: $125

NEW event! 

A hands-on, dynamic experience for the experienced player to explore composition, intonation, dueting, the mastery of space and more with acclaimed world flutist, Suzanne Teng. Suzanne melds diverse influences from her classical beginning to a myriad of world music (and dance) traditions and has traveled the world to perform and instruct.

 

In this all-day, small group setting you will have the opportunity to play alone, with others, and receive instruction and personal feedback. Gilbert Levy, a master with musical texture, will weave accompaniment to each player on drums, percussion, and stringed instruments.

 

Topics to be covered in both a class and a masterclasssetting (each participant receives a mini 'private lesson' in front of the group):

  • Composing - Approaches to composing, form, creating melodies, different styles of composing
  • Recording - Tips for the recording process, how to get from great tracks to finished released album (artwork, marketing, website, streaming)
  • Space…The First Frontier - Learning to play with space, letting the music breathe
  • Intonation - Training our ears, using a tuner, how to make adjustments
  • Duets - listening, following, leading, uniting
  • Career Tips - Gigs, recordings, teaching…
  • Personal development - bring your questions and aspects of your playing for personal feedback
  • Mini Teacher Training - tips on teaching 
  • Masterclass Format - Everyone will get a chance to play and receive feedback from Suzanne and the group
  • Play with Gilbert - Play and receive guidance when playing with stringed instruments, percussion, duets

 

Prerequisites: Geared towards more experienced players who are comfortable with a relatively fast-paced course. You do not need to be a fast or fancy player, rather one who is motivated to receive a lot of information and try new things!
