This year we have introduced a new speciality: "Combo" : classical music students tend not to study very much improvisation, but today there is a recognition of the necessity to mix a multitude of musical styles, benefitting from this source of creativity and learning. Today's student also needs to experience and learn new techniques and new music, which broaden and develop a CREATIVITY through the participation in cooperative work. Through improvisation we learn to develop a relationship with dialogue. Without doubt the principle goal is a sensitivity to the musical elements, and achieving their expression. Through improvisation you "become performer and creator at the same time."

INFORMATION FOR PIANISTS
In addition to individual tuition, piano students participate in group workshops, dealing with aspects of musical interpretation from different perspectives. There will be at least four of these workshops, with each one lasting about two hours.
These workshops will include:
Understanding -- Theoretical explanation of the bases for an artistic interpretation.
Resolution -- Spotting and overcoming any physical or emotional blockages that could
hinder the creative flow of a performance.
Experimentation -- Theoretical and practical exercises, allowing students to
become more aware of the physical aspects of musical performance.
Application -- Expression and communication exercises, both with and without the instrument, to improve stage performance.
Discussion -- Talks and debates on aspects of musical practice, such as: methods of study,
musical expression and communication.
We shall also use sensitization exercises, both individually and as a group.
