2019 Career Development

7 June Natsumi school

Win or not, the value of partaking in competitions is the hard graft the musicians put into their preparation to be at their absolute peak. The intensity they encounter through the rounds is unparalleled in any other environment.

For those violinists invited to partake in the Michael Hill, workshops addressing a range of skills, such as delivering schools programmes, are offered.

The Michael Hill genuinely wants every violinist to leave New Zealand stronger and more insightful than when they arrived. To this end, the Competition judges provide personal feedback to the quarter-finalists not advanced to the Round III semi-finals.

Masterclasses are provided by Competition judges to competitors not advancing to the Final Round. 

A customised professional development programme to meet the needs and goals of the winner. Commencing with exercises to identify the artist’s strengths and areas for development, the winner is personally guided by Andrea Duncan, a NZ leading specialist in coaching exceptional performance in the board room, Olympic field, or concert hall. The bulk of the professional development is undertaken during the Winner’s Tour.

Past winners have developed skills and confidence in public speaking, branding, stage presence, media training, maintaining and managing influential stakeholders, stress management, etc.

Every Michael Hill winner has said that their Winner’s Tour was the most significant part of their prize package because it provided an opportunity unlike any other to develop and test their artistry in a thrilling pressure-cooker experience – a five week performance tour of New Zealand and Australia with recitals, a concerto and a recording.
