Consultation

When you apply for a Mentorship (formerly known as a Study Programme) you will be invited to a Consultation with Artistic Director Richard Ireland. This also serves as an audition for groups applying to ChamberStudio for the first time. The Consultation consists of a one-hour coaching session followed by a 30-minute discussion to agree details of the Mentorship – including the following decisions:

1 - CENTRAL GOALS
The specific aspects of playing that the group most wants to focus on, and what repertoire to include

2 - CHOICE OF PROFESSOR

THE IDEAL NUMBER OF MASTERCLASSES

3 - A TIME SPAN
AUTUMN MENTORSHIPS RUNS 1 AUGUST - 31 JANUARY
Application deadline for Autumn 2018 – 1 July.

4 - SPRING MENTORSHIPS RUN 1 FEBRUARY - 31 JULY
SPRING MENTORSHIPS RUN 1 FEBRUARY - 31 JULY
Application deadline for Spring 2019 – 5 January


Final details will then be agreed with Richard by the end of the Consultation.


Mentorship

After the Consultation, each Mentorship comprises a tailor-made set of between three and six three-hour masterclasses with a ChamberStudio Professor, and concludes with a Review session. The Review doubles up as a Consultation for those groups wanting to plan a new Mentorship to follow on from their existing one.

The masterclasses are held at Kings Place, our home base, which gives you the opportunity to play and work in front of a small audience. They will normally take place on weekday evenings or weekend afternoons.

Groups accepted onto the scheme might also be invited to attend a three-day intensive Residency, to participate in our Visiting Professor Series, or to play in one of our Hall One Masterclasses.
