Preparing for a Recital

Choosing music and writing program notes using library resources.


If you want to watch great teachers and musicians in action, check out MSPAL's collection of over 30 masterclass DVDs. Like all DVDs, they circulate for up to seven days. 

Remember, something new and unexpected can be learned from every great teacher and musician, regardless of subject or instrument.


You also have online access to video recordings of masterclasses through the Classical Music in Video database. Once you are there:

  1. Search for "masterclasses" or select "More" under the list of genres.
  2. Under "Content Type," select "Masterclass."
