General Abstract

Masters & Apprentices is a unique and successful concert series where young musicians work together with very experienced singers. During a relatively short but intensive rehearsal period, they work towards a concert series with a world-renowned conductor. Deep and collaborative learning while maintaining a very high professional standard yields top performance. We assume that profit and not-for-profit organizations can learn from this special program focusing on conveying deep smarts and implicit experiences.

Main research question:

Which characteristics of this Music & Arts learning environment are conducive to experimentation, learning and professional growth in a corporate setting?

Geert Berghs and Joseph Kessels presented the preliminary results of the research project on Masters & Apprentices at the EAPRIL 2019 Conference at the University of Tartu in Estonia (27 November 2019). They showed a video compilation of recent concerts and interviews with apprentices. A handout of their presentation, as well as an article on the research project, can be downloaded.
