From 24th through 30th August 2019 

Our summer school enables young musicians from different countries to enrich themselves with artistic, technical and life experience.

Each member of this summer school will have individual lessons as well as chamber music lessons with a chosen professor. The latter will be carefully devised on the basis of instrumentation and the knowledge of a particular participant.

EMARS summer school is not only intended for highly talented children or well-educated musicians. Everybody who wants to upgrade their musical knowledge with a renowned professor is kindly invited to take part.
One of the main goals we offer our students is to spend the days together. Regular lessons usually bring a student and his professor together only at the time of their lecture, while our summer school offers a better way of building a strong bond between students, mentors and peers throughout the day. The idea is also supported by developmental psychologists – especially the contact among the younger and the older is very important because the younger spontaneously follow the example of the older ones.
