Educational Programs

In addition to performers, Hub New Music is a group of passionate educators dedicated to creating comprehensive residency programs for students of many disciplines. Please see below for a list of our educational programs and feel free to contact us if you are interested in customizing a residency program that fits best with your school or university. 

TRADITIONAL MASTERCLASSES

Each member of Hub is a seasoned chamber musician, working in a variety of contexts and genres. Hub brings our spirit of diversity and collaboration in both public chamber music masterclasses as well as private coachings for student ensembles of all ages and levels. 

COMPOSITION WORKSHOP

Hub is dedicated to bringing a new generation of music to life and frequently workshops the works of student composers . During our workshop sessions Hub will read pieces from each student and offer feedback on their work. Concluding the performances, Hub will then open up a Q & A on composer-performer collaborations, the commissioning process, and answer any questions from the students.

Side by side performance

Hub New Music can perform several works from its collaborative repertoire alongside students, giving them an inside look at working with a professional contemporary music ensemble. Note these residencies require several days of preparation with students and are based on the repertoire selection. 

THE 21ST CENTURY MUSICIAN

Hub's performers enjoy diverse backgrounds as performers, composers, curators, and entrepreneurs. Our lecture on 21st century musicianship gives students a look at running an arts organization touching upon the basics of marketing, development, management, outreach, and artistic planning. Hub also gives the option of an interactive step-by-step walk through of producing a concert.  (Please note this does require advanced preparation from the students.) Through this lecture, we hope students are inspired to take the reigns on their musical careers and learn the rudiments of becoming a self-starting musician. 

DEMYSTIFYING Self Management

Executive Director, Michael Avitabile uses his background in artist management to discuss the business of booking concerts and tours. In this lecture, students will learn about different types of presenters, creating an effective pitch, building tours, designing concert programs, and crafting educational residencies.
