On Monday, musicians in M5, U5 and L6 had the opportunity to work with John Reynolds in a performance masterclass.
John is a Clarinettist, Composer and Pianist who studied at the Royal College of Music and went on to enjoy a freelance career before becoming Head of Woodwind at RNCM and then later RWCMD.
John offered a wealth of advice to our pupils, some relating to specific technical pointers, to more general pointers regarding performance and musicianship. It was an incredibly useful session for our pupils and we are grateful to John for his time and helpful advice.
On Tuesday lunchtime, John gave a recital, accompanied by Mr Daykin in the King's Court Theatre. The programme was an eclectic mix, ranging from Mozart to lesser known works by Edward German. It was a delightful way to spend a lunchtime.
