Practice Clinic

Most musicians grow up learning the physicality of how to practice, but music education often neglects our individual relationships with our instruments and our practice psychology. The Delphi Trio draws on its extensive research from the Practice Project to bring this clinic on practice and rehearsal to students, professionals, and amateur musicians alike. Liana, Michelle, and Jeffrey have learned from experience that the best performances come from physically and emotionally healthy artists, and they encourage participants in this clinic to seek positive relationships with themselves and their colleagues throughout the practice and rehearsal process. Emphasis is placed on self-awareness, asking questions, and open artistic exploration.

 

Panel Discussion (also available as Post-Concert Chat)

In this offering, the Delphi Trio invites audience members into discussion about different aspects of artistic life. Drawing on the Trio’s individual experiences and their research from the Practice Project, topics can include commissioning new compositions, getting an ensemble off the ground, rehearsal technique, practice and performance psychology, artistic philosophy, life as a chamber musician, fundraising and the grant application process, the importance of trust within an ensemble, and more. Areas of discussion will be tailored to specific audiences, and listeners are encouraged both to ask questions and participate in the conversation with the Trio. This offering is available as a separate event or as an informal post-concert chat.

 

Masterclasses, Chamber Music Coachings, and Private Lessons

Liana, Michelle, and Jeffrey believe strongly in the value and importance of sharing their knowledge, experience, and love for music with others through teaching. The Delphi Trio emphasizes the essential communicative aspect of chamber music and an approach to interpretation based on the unity of the score rather than the separation of its parts.

Having worked with students of all ages and levels of experience, the trio has become known for their inspiring chamber music workshops and master classes around the country.
