The potential of the masterclass

Masterclasses are a unique form of tuition, whereby the student is being taught by a teacher who doesn’t know them in front of an audience who is also expected to learn something from it. What do the students gain from participating in masterclasses?

Isabelle Perrin is a harp professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music, where she also heads the Strings and Harp Department. She has participated in the CEMPE-project on teaching and learning in masterclasses. Ingrid Maria Hanken is Professor of Music Education at the same institution and manages the project.

In this conversation between the two, we learn more about the project and the students’ experiences from participating in masterclasses. Read the full dialogue on  the potential of the masterclass (pdf).
