How Best to Prepare for Performing with Pianist Winnie Su

Wednesday 17 April from 11am to 2pm (includes a 30 min break)
Chippen Street Theatre
45 Chippen Street, Chippendale

Cost: $50

As we all know, performing can be nerve-racking. This Masterclass will focus on how to make the experience of getting up on stage a healthier and happier one.

Winnie Su is a highly accomplished international pianist and a passionate music educator who strives to ensure playing music is a positive and uplifting experience for all students. Since the age of 9, Winnie Su has won over 80 medals at Eisteddfods in Australia and overseas, notably the 2022 Kawai Senior Piano Scholarship.

This opportunity is valuable to students and to parents in supporting their children in the lead up to the Sydney Eisteddfod and other performance opportunities. She will discuss how to deal with pressure and performance anxiety, memorising music, what adjudicators are looking for, how to interpret feedback, positive self-talk, and performance practices.

If a piano student would like to play for Winnie during this session, they should write to [email protected], including their age and best contact number.
