The Prep Studies student recitals are a wonderful way to celebrate our students' musical development, and for students to hear and learn from their peers. Recitals are a great performance opportunity in themselves, and can also serve as preparation for a student's own upcoming Festival class(es), exam or competition.
Prep Studies student recitals are held monthly, and sometimes bi-monthly, on Sunday afternoons from October to June. Recitals take place at the Faculty of Music (65 Dafoe Road) in Eva Clare Hall. Recitals are scheduled in hourly segments so students can request the time they would like to play. Family and friends are welcome to attend these recitals, and all participants are encouraged to stay for the duration of the recital they are participating in.

What is a masterclass? In a masterclass, a small number of students take turns working with a guest clinician. This clinician may be a Prep Studies teacher, or another local or visiting musician. Each student plays a piece for the clinician, and has a period of time for the clinician to relay feedback on the performance and work on some interpretive or technical suggestions. The students participating in the masterclass learn not only from their own time with the clinician, but also by watching the experiences of their peers in the class. Masterclasses are planned according to instrument, and can also be planned according to playing level.
