The RNCM visit Xaverian College on an annual basis to run a Performance Masterclass. Students receive extensive feedback for their performances and are guided on how to prepare for auditions, competitions and recitals.
The RNCM coached our fantastic students, they conducted 2 classes simultaneously; 1 for classical and 1 for pop/jazz musicians. Senior representatives, Chris Hoyle (Head of strings), Kevin Gowland (Director of Woodwind and Deputy Head of Wind, Brass and Percussion) and Andy Stott (Head of Popular Music) led the event. The feedback enabled students to improve posture, communication, phrasing, interpretation, technique and musicianship.
“What a wonderful opportunity for our students, they were focused, driven and were eager to learn. They performed exceptionally well and are now inspired to progress to the next level and fulfil their potential.” – Andrew Levendis, Director of Music Xaverian College.
