Master classes are already occupied. 

The date of the Academy: August 22 – 26, 2022.

The project „VISEGRAD MUSIC YOUTH ACADEMY“ is focused on improving the artistic and performing skills of young musicians – string instruments and flute players. The classes will be led by prominent V4 musicians – reputable pedagogues and world-renowned concert artists. It is rather rare to find master classes where the students have the privilege to work with a top level concert artists on a daily basis. Such an intensive interaction between the student and the teacher can lead to a notable improvement in a very short period of time. In the contrast with other comparatively events we will focus on common concert performances of students and teachers, which will be surely an extraordinary experience for the young students. Particularly the opportunities for public concert performing are absolutely essential for young musicians.

VISEGRAD MUSIC YOUTH ACADEMY – founded in 2018 – includes private and group lessons, concerts and free time activities. The participants will get 5 individual and group chamber music lessons. We will focus not only on the individual lessons, but also on the chamber music playing. We would be very happy to meet you there.

The number of participants is limited. We therefore recommend to submit the application as soon as possible.
