The Complete Harpsichordist

This workshop allows students to study harpsichord repertoire, technique and history, and to learn harpsichord tuning and regulation skills.  Students may bring their own instruments to work on during the workshop, and may choose to focus on either playing or tuning and maintenance.


The daily schedule will include masterclasses in solo harpsichord repertoire, continuo playing and tuning/regulation, an afternoon lecture or recital, private lessons and regulation instruction.


Players should prepare up to five works to perform and bring five photocopies of each piece.  Those studying tuning and regulation should bring their tuning and tool kits, as well as their own harpsichords if possible.  Information about assembling the proper tuning and regulation tools can be provided if necessary.
