How to Apply
Due to the international travel and governmental restrictions, we have decided to offer the 28th Ameropa International Music Academy completely online.
We are currently taking applications for the festival, and upon registering, we will email you all the details and information you will need.
Students will have an online lesson on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with their music coach. During this lesson, students will work on either a duet or small ensemble piece they will record and present on the final online concert. On Tuesday and Thursday, students will be invited to join online discussions and clinics about interesting musical concepts.
For students located in Asia, lessons will take place between 16:00 and 19:00 China Standard Time (CST). If you are located in the US, lessons will take place between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
We highly recommend forming your own duo, trio, or quartet wherever you are, that way you are able to rehearse the music live with the other musicians. The coach will be able to coach you via Zoom and help prepare you for the final concert. If you are not able to form your own group, then you may also sign up as a single participant. This means that your coach will find a suitable chamber piece for you to play and the other parts will be played by either other faculty members or other participants.
Fees include tuition, access to all online concerts, access to online discussions and clinics, and 3 online lessons to prepare them to record and perform a piece for the final concert. The cost of tuition is €300 per ensemble.
If you are already in Prague and would like to perform with the Filarmonieta Praga string orchestra at the St. Barbora Church in Kutna Hora on August 7th, please contact us and we can help arrange the details for you to join us.
Yes, you can. You can register as a passive participant which will give you access to the concerts and online discussions and clinics. The price will be reduced since you will not have regular online lessons with a music coach.
After I apply for the festival, what should I do?
You will wait a few days for us to respond back to you via email, where we will match you with one of our coaches and choose the chamber music you and your ensemble will practice and perform. Payments can be made until August 7th.
