Hosted at http://www.artistworksclassical.com or at http://www.artistworks.com/googleplus this live roundtable will be hosted by Classical Music magazine Deputy Editor Kimon Daltas and features discussion with ArtistWorks Classical Music Campus world-renowned teaching artists including: Jeffrey Khaner (Principal Flutist, Philadelphia Orchestra, Curtis Institute); David Bilger (Principal Trumpet, Philadelphia Orchestra, Curtis Institute); Ricardo Morales (Principal Clarinetist, Philadelphia Orchestra, Curtis Institute, Juilliard, Temple University); William Caballero (Principal French Horn, Pittsburgh Orchestra, Carnegie Mellon University School of Music), Nathan Cole (Violin, First Associate Concertmaster, Los Angeles Philharmonic); classical guitarist Jason Vieaux (Cleveland Institute of Music, Curtis Institute), as well as ArtistWorks founder and CEO David Butler.
Launched on September 19th, the ArtistWorks Classical Campus provides a core curriculum of video lessons in five core orchestral instruments including violin, French horn, trumpet, clarinet, flute, as well as guitar and piano. Lessons cover playing habits as well as the etudes and orchestral excerpts that musicians need to perfect for competitions or university, conservatory or professional orchestra auditions. Subscribing students can use webcams, smart phones or other video devices to video their own progress and upload directly to their instructor. The teaching artists then provide personalized video responses with critique and comment on technique as well as add priceless insights. These interactions are available for all students to see and learn from. This new online approach represents a virtual master class where every participant gets personalized attention from the master.
The October 2nd roundtable discussion is free and requires only a web browser and Internet connection. Viewers can ask questions during the online presentation via the host’s chat feature or via Twitter using the hashtag #artistworksclassical.
