At the Summer Academy, you can participate in masterclasses for 12 different instruments: piano, organ, harpsichord, accordion, flute, traverso, clarinet, violin, baroque violin, viola d`amore, viola and cello.
State your teacher wishes in the registration form. If you want, you can request lessons from several teachers! If you would like lessons more than 5 x 45min or want to play a second instrument, the price of additional lesson is 55€/45min for those who pay the full course fee. However, we have to use discretion when granting additional hours if the teacher already has a very full class.
