Raising the bar

These classes are for those who have a solid understanding of the core principles we promote and show how to take the game forwards – in terms of artistic ambition, interpretation, gesture and rehearsal method.


Five 90-minute classes:

  1. Art and artistry
    • The flow processes essential to achieving our artistic ambitions.
  2. Interpretation
    • Examining the conversion process from abstract idea to musical sound.
  3. Advanced mechanics
    • How to combine gestures to create a single line of narrative flow.
  4. Auftakts
    • How to hit all the targets simultaneously with one shot.
  5. Rehearsal management
    • The principles which build artistic value rather than inhibiting it.

Devised by CA director Jonathan Brett and presented via the Zoom platform, these classes are predicated on participants having a solid understanding of our approach to conducting.
