Find out how to improve your performance skills with ICMP tutor Ben Jones.

What to expect from the event

This online session will be hosted by the Programme Leader for the BMus Popular Music Performance curse, Ben Jones. 

Ben will introduce you to how we approach music performance at ICMP.  You'll pick up some great insight and advice around stagecraft, musicality and what to expect from our BMus (Hons) Popular Music Performance degree and HNC Music Performance course

Reflection and analysis are the cornerstones of a modern professional musician's practice and are fundamental for personal development. Throughout the pandemic, our students have been engaging in interactive seminars that build these skills and help apply them to their own personal goals.

This session will provide you with an opportunity to begin to develop your own critical understanding of performance practice and how it can feed into improving your own performances.

Optional feedback available

The session is also a chance to receive feedback on your performance skills from Ben. We appreciate that not everyone will want to do this, so it's completely optional. But if you do want to take advantage of this offer, simply include a link to your video in the sign-up form below.
