CMF Artistic Mentoring Programme


CMF Artistic Mentoring Programme

In addition to the business mentoring programme, CMF artists undergo an apprenticeship through one to one sessions with established international artists in their area of music.

For example, the string quartet which was enrolled on the CMF Artist Programme in 2015 is mentored by a world famous string quartet. They meet regularly and play to them, and are planning joint concerts and recitals. They receive an in depth insight into the lives and strategies of a successful string quartet, teaching and constructive criticism, introductions to venues and promoters and much more.

We have other examples in which CMF has been able to arrange for artists to share concert platforms in prestigious venues with renowned, established professionals, benefitting from their guidance and expertise in all areas of professional practice.

Some CMF Artists have preferred a serial approach, with masterclasses and individual sessions set up with a number of different practitioners in their field, giving a broader approach to apprenticeship, and allowing for the CMF Artists to see the range of possible routes and styles of success in their area of musicianship.

Coupled with the business mentoring programme and the professional development workshops, CMF offers highly talented musicians with a proven musical and performance track record, an in-the-round approach to furthering and securing their careers, through direct mentoring and guidance from those with real expertise and experience.

The CMF Artist Programme pioneers a 21st century approach to apprenticeship – gaining the best possible support and insight from a range of masters of the art.
