A master class is a performance class where each participating student is invited to perform various solos, etudes, scales or exercises in a class-room setting consisting of musical piers and other interested parties. Each IMC master class is taught by a noted university professor of national or international prestige.
All students are invited to observe frequent master classes presented by the leading university professors in our area. In this manner they will be able to follow closely the development of fellow students as well as to observe numerous approaches to technical and musical challenges. In essence each and every student will be exposed to the same level of instruction that they might receive during future enrollment at an International college/conservatory level.
