Some of the world’s finest chamber music players and teachers give masterclasses at ChamberStudio. Groups accepted onto the scheme design, in consultation with Artistic Director Richard Ireland, their own Study Programme consisting of a set of three-hour masterclasses with a chosen mentor. The mentor will normally be a ChamberStudio Professor but might also be a suggested guest (see Guest Professors for the biographies of some of those who are currently working with groups or have been invited in the past). Masterclasses are held at Kings Place on weekday evenings and weekend afternoons and are open, and free, to observers.

Groups may also be invited to take part in one of our other schemes:

Visiting Professor Series – We have welcomed Ferenc Rados, Rita Wagner, Eberhard Feltz and Erich Höbarth, among others, as Visiting Professors.

Hall One Masterclasses – Special guests, who have given stand-alone masterclasses in Hall One at Kings Place, have included Sir András Schiff, Steven Isserlis and Shmuel Ashkenasi.

Residencies – A ChamberStudio Residency provides the rare opportunity for a group to work intensively over a three-day period in a peaceful setting outside London.
