In September 2014, Christopher will join the staff at Elmhurst School for Dance in association with Birmingham Royal Ballet as head of musicians and musical support.
This job will give Chris the opportunity to continue to musically train dancers, engage with pianists to help them understand the importance of correct musical support during ballet class / rehearsals and to initiate a training scheme for musicains. This scheme will teach musicians how to accompany classes and rehearsals.
Review of Modern Ballet Studio Melodies Volume 5 & Original Ballet Compositions by Emily Kate Long on 4dancers.org
Today I’m excited to share two new class CDs from UK pianist Christopher Hobson:Modern Ballet Studio Melodies, Volume 5 and Modern Ballet Studio Melodies Original Compositions. Each features 32 non-repeating tracks of crisply recorded solo piano music.
I love this CD and my students love it as well. We are looking forward to many more volumes in the future! The ballet world needs your talents, skills and sensitivities. I hope you will always make a contribution to it.
