Lecture (Practice/Study)

The Past, Present, and Future of Practice
Presenter: Marc Gelfo

The last one hundred years has seen a tremendous change in our understanding of learning and skill development. I begin with an overview of traditional music practice techniques, looking at underlying assumptions and models, to establish a baseline. From there I will discuss research from the last few decades, drawing from fields such as cognitive science, peak performance, and psychopharmacology, as well as the influence of traditional practices such as yoga and meditation on how we can improve as musicians. This leads to a survey of the current "cutting edge" of practice techniques. I will discuss my own experiences leading a holistic music practice retreat, as well as the influence of programs such as Noa Kageyama's Bulletproof Musician. Finally, I will explore directions the future might hold for music practice, examining the role of technology, biofeedback, nutrition, and other fruitful domains.

Theatrical Production: I Found My Horn

Theatrical Production: I Found My Horn

I Found My Horn
Writers: Jasper Rees and Jonathan Guy Lewis
Director: Harry Burton
Actor: Jonathan Guy Lewis

Jonathan Guy Lewis is directed by Harry Burton in an updated production of this wryly funny and infinitely touching story about making music and confronting one’s private demons. Adapted from Jasper Rees’ popular book, A Devil to Play, the play was premiered in 2008 at the Aldeburgh Festival in Benjamin Britten’s home town. It was performed to great acclaim at the 2014 International Horn Society workshop in London.

A man wakes up at forty to a broken marriage, a beckoning bedsit, and the realisation that he has done nothing to make himself memorable. Then he clambers into the attic... After a lay-off of 25 years, he seeks redemption via the sixteen feet of treacherous brass tubing he never mastered in his youth. Resuming his old French horn, he sets himself an impossible task: to perform a Mozart concerto in front of a paying audience of horn fanatics.

Q&A to follow.

*This production will be repeated on Saturday, 8/8.

Recovering from lip injury: the long road back
Presenter: Bruce Atwell

In November 2012 I had surgery on my upper lip to remove potentially precancerous lesions. This was the start of a two year process of returning to professional playing involving many ups and downs, contact with many brass musicians who had had injuries, and eventually rediscovering the joy of horn playing. This presentation will cover my journey back with resources and advice for injured players and a discussion of injury prevention.
