Salzburg Mozarteum Star Inspires Prior Park Musicians

06 Mar 2014

Six Prior Park Music students were fortunate enough to take part in a musical workshop at the College with principal oboist at the Salzburg Mozarteum, Sasha Calin.

Sasha gave all the students an inspiring talk, teaching them mental and physical techniques from the top ranks of the music profession that are key to preparing yourself for an important performance, be it an audition or a concert. Following on from this, each student had the opportunity to perform a piece to Sasha. Sasha provided detailed feedback whilst helping the students, many of whom already play in national orchestras, to break down the trickiest areas, as well as offering advice on how to boost their stage presence.

This Audition Workshop was inspiring for our Music students and a fantastic opportunity for them to learn from someone who has been in a similar situation to themselves, and has gone on to excel within her field.
