After careful consideration and feedback from teachers, we’ve decided to postpone these workshops until Feb/Mar next year. We’ve realised that many teachers are busy in the deep-end of exam prep and teaching frantically in the evenings, so we are planning to postpone to a calmer timeframe when we can incorporate ideas into our year’s teaching programs. In the meantime, if you’re interested in being the first to get notified when the new dates are announced, please leave your name and email below. This is a free waitlist with no obligation to attend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I just attend one session?
- When you book, you’ll have access to the live meetings and/or replays for all 4 meetings. You may choose how many you attend, but there is no discounted option for just attending one session.
Will you be discussing specific exam boards?
- All advise and strategies will be equally relevant no matter what exam board or syllabus you use in your studio. Most of the challenges we experience are generic to all students performing or undertaking exams so this workshop will be equally relevant to stage performing, recitals, auditions and exams. That said, we will be discussing grading descriptors and syllabus objectives to help teachers understand the outcomes better.
Can I ask questions?
- Absolutely! Join our live meetings to ask questions of our presenters live and you can also ask questions in the FB group we’ll be creating just for workshop participants.
