Rachel Barton Pine is always happy to give master classes, if her schedule allows. She works with students at universities, conservatories, youth orchestras, community music schools, and Suzuki programs. Her comments are specific to each student and their repertoire but are designed to be useful for all in attendance.
Two-three individuals or ensembles per hour is recommended, though this is flexible depending on the ages and levels of the students. An important element of Ms. Pine's master classes is a Q&A session at the end, where she gives advice to students, parents, and teachers about topics such as practicing habits. If time allows, she may also perform a short piece or two.
All performers are required to attend the entire master class. Audio and video recording are allowed and encouraged. Please provide Ms. Pine with two orchestra-style chairs (straight-backed and armless) and two bottles of plain water. One week before the class, please let Ms. Pine know what repertoire will be performed.
For more information, please contact Ms. Pine's manager, John Zion at Melvin Kaplan, Inc., at 802-658-2592 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your skill in conducting the master classes was so impressive, offering as you did a lesson for each student individually but also for the gathering of other students and parents – a lesson in vibrato; in proper position; in intonation; in voicing, etc. WOW!! What a class!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
I just wanted to thank you so much for coming to Harlem School of the Arts on Friday. You've inspired my students, their parents and me.
