TYPICAL DAILY SCHEDULE
What can you expect in a day at Classical music on the spot? here's an outline of our daily activities:
A typical day at Classical Music on the Spot begins at 9:00 a.m. with an interactive lecture/demonstration with faculty and all students.
Students are encouraged to practice on modern or historical instruments, and receive a one-on-one lesson.
We then reconvene as a group for a playing session; participants are invited to share their morning's progress, and faculty facilitate a discussion.
The lunch hour is free time. Those living on campus may prepare meals in their apartments or dine at Linfield's Dillin Dining Hall.
We resume practice time and individual lessons (each student receives two lessons each day), and convene for a second group playing session.
After a coffee break, faculty and guests offer seminars on a variety of topics including performance practice, historical instruments, critical editions, analysis, and original research.
Students are free during the evenings to be at home on the Linfield College campus, explore historic downtown McMinnville's shops, wineries, and restaurants, or visit the concurrent Aquilon Music Festival at Linfield.
“A great resource for a variety of approaches to eighteenth-century improvisation all in one accessible package. Instructors are great and have organized everything perfectly."
