The day begins with Sir James' warm-up sessions for everyone. This is the time to check your daily practice routines and technique progress. Sir James will teach you how to achieve a beautiful tone with his exercises and Marcel Moyse's studies. Sir James and Lady Galway will each give separate masterclasses, teaching masterclass lessons to students on standard flute repertoire with piano accompaniment, which are open for everyone to observe. This is a fantastic opportunity to listen to fellow students perform and learn from your peers. The day will end with all students and Observers coming together to perform an ensemble piece together!
