Our students take advantage of visiting artists to receive extra lessons from performers from all over North America. These lessons are often presented in a masterclass format. A masterclass is when the lesson is also attended by many other students, who all take notes and learn from the individual lessons. Suzuki Institutes provide a unique opportunity for younger and beginner students to experience lessons in masterclasses. Older and more advanced students can often participate in masterclasses and workshops presented by visiting artists through the Edmonton Flute Association and Edmonton Recorder Society.
Recently, one of our flute students participated in a masterclass at U of A with Paolo Bortolussi.
And our recorder students were able to have a masterclass with members of Flute Alors!
