Advanced Music Studies
2024 Season - Mihai Tetel, Director

All participants receive 8 private lessons during a 14-day session. The lessons are 45 minutes long. Participants receive instruction from all listed faculty for their instrument either through private lessons and/or masterclasses.

Masterclasses are two hours long, as specified in the ABOUT page for each instrument. Each participant will have the opportunity to play in several masterclasses.

In addition, there will be a Talk to the Pros class scheduled towards the end of each session. During this class the participants and faculty will have the opportunity to discuss a variety of topics including competitions, auditions, and career issues.

Flute and clarinet participants will be able to take part in mock orchestral auditions.

Private lessons will take place between 9 AM and 9 PM and all participants receive a detailed schedule at the beginning of the program. The schedule will specify the exact date, time, and teacher for each lesson.

Masterclasses will take place either between 10 AM and 12 noon, or between 4 and 6 PM depending on the instrument. Most of the master classes will be on specific topics and/or repertoire. All participants will be sent a suggested list of repertoire to prepare for the masterclasses. This will be done 4-6 weeks before the start of each session.
