Spend six days on the shore of Keuka Lake, surrounded by picturesque landscapes and vineyards, and be inspired by a world-class faculty. This program is designed for adult trumpet players who desire more performance (solo and ensemble) and networking opportunities; it will also benefit anyone who may need assistance and strategies to recover from injuries. A typical day will include a morning warm-up and technique class, master classes, and Pilates classes, with time to practice and relax. Participants and accompanying travel partners will enjoy a Morning Stretch class to wake up the body, release tension, and prepare for the day, as well as an afternoon Pilates for Performers class: a mind-body workout with an emphasis on breath control, posture, relaxation, and tension release (non-trumpeters may participate in Pilates classes for a reduced fee). Participants can fill their free time with winery tours, a visit to the Curtis Wright Museum, or a hike in beautiful Watkins Glen (admission to local attractions is not included in student tuition).
