Consultation

Each new Study Programme starts with a Consultation with Richard Ireland. In some cases this may be combined with the Review session from the previous programme.

Study Programme

A Study Programme comprises a tailor-made set of between three and six coaching sessions with a ChamberStudio Professor. Sessions are held at Kings Place, our home base, which gives you the opportunity to play and work in front of a small audience of observers (though in some circumstances a closed session may be appropriate), as well as preserving our valued link with Kings Place, one of the UK’s great concert venues. You might also be invited to work with Visiting Professors and to play in one of our bigger public masterclass events.

What happens next?

After the Consultation, details of the Study Programme will be finalised with Richard Ireland. These include decisions such as:

  • Central goals – the specific aspects of playing that the group most wants, or needs, to focus on and improve, and what repertoire to work on
  • The ideal number of sessions for the programme
  • A time span for the programme. For the Autumn Programmes the last session should take place before 31 December 2017
  • Whether it’s suitable for all sessions to be held in public or whether some should be scheduled to be in private.

Your Study Programme will conclude with a Review session with Richard Ireland.
