Performing Arts Master Class – Dr Ashley Smith
University of Western Australia lecturer Dr Ashley Smith conducted a Master Class for music students on Monday 22 August 2016 within the Oakmont Theatre.
This was a unique opportunity for our music students. Dr Ashley Smith is a graduate of UWA (2008) and Yale University (2013). Dr Smith is currently the Head of Woodwind and Contemporary Music at UWA and has many prestigious awards to his name.
As a performer, Dr Smith is a soloist with many orchestras and ensembles both in Australia and around the world. He is a Bass Clarinet specialist and performs new contemporary works by local and international composers.
The Master Class consisted of Dr Ashley Smith working with four senior clarinet students alongside an informative presentation and discussion, and concluded with a performance by Dr Smith.
Students who attend enjoyed the Master Class very much, and appreciated the knowledge that Dr Ashley Smith shared with them.
