Combining breath-taking technicality and musical integrity in her performances and recordings with the discipline of practice and the love of music have all shaped the musical career of international chamber soloist, the clarinetist Victoria Samek. A self-styled entrepreneur with a recording and publishing company, Samek Music, Victoria is an experienced educator with an individual and sensitive approach to teaching and coaching enhanced by a Master’s of Science in Performance Science from the Royal College of Music. Her ongoing research and dedication to the ethos of musical aptitude at every level, she has developed Organise-Prioritise-Commit; The Practice & Performance Process. This ground-breaking and revolutionary approach she is sharing with performers and teachers all over the world.
Starting in September 2021 Victoria will be visiting Trinity Laban to deliver a new series of inspirational lecture workshops that are set to revolutionise traditional approaches to learning preparation and performance currently held by musicians. Her Organise-Prioritise-Commit; The Practice to Performance Process (OPC) is the first process that bridges the gulf between Research Theorists and Performance Practitioners. OPC has reinvented multitasking into a process which will not only extend a Musician’s efficiency in everyday tasks and their capability in the most complex of disciplines but also provides them purpose and fulfilment throughout the process.
Success in performance stems from a healthy attitude in practice that empowers the musician with the tools to customise their learning process. Unique to her approach is not to separate the aspirational demands and anxieties in performance from the practice process. Assimilating relevant models and theories from science with a lifetime of practical experience (ongoing!) gives her a significant advantage; she knows from whence she speaks!
