PLAN OF STUDIES

Individual lessons in technique and musical interpretation: All students will receive from their professors a minimum of five lessons lasting 60 minutes each, during which they will develop their instrumental technique and work on two or three works of their own choice. Classes will be given in the morning and afternoon starting at 9.30 finishing around 19.30. The maximum of students for each professor shall be 10.

Chamber Music lessons: all students that choose this option in the enrolment form will be part of chamber music groups, under the direction of one of the professors of the course (a list of works is posted on our website in the NEWS box).

The students will choose those pieces they would like to work from the list posted in our website, which must be specified in the enrolment form in order of preference (we advice to bring your own parts).

When, in the professor’s judgement, the group or student has prepared its chosen work sufficiently, it will be performed at a public concert. In case the number of participants outnumbers the expectations, there will be an audition prior to the concerts, in any case the director of the course will take the final decision.

The Alexander Technique will be organize in two blocks. Each block will consist of three days where each student (maximum 14 per block) will receive three individual lessons of 45 minutes and one group lesson of 60 minutes.
