Online Masterclasses Session II

Back by popular demand, ASMI will be hosting it’s second series of online masterclasses on Saturday & Sunday, July 18-19 & Jul 25-26. Our first series was launched in April during the COVID-19 outbreak, and it was a resounding success. Please watch the promo video above as well as the announcement video below. 

The online masterclasses function exactly like an in-person masterclass, with the exception that it is hosted on Zoom. Each student participates in four masterclasses and typically receives 30 minutes of individual feedback, while the other students listen. There is also a Q&A at the end of the masterclass for students to ask general questions. There are no age or level requirements.

Typically, the masterclasses are structured so that each student participates in two masterclasses with each faculty member pertaining to their instrument, though you can select to study with only one of the teachers.

Repertoire guidance is a concerto, sonata, unaccompanied Bach, and a contemporary piece or showpiece, though the student can also play repertoire that they have prepared, including basic technique, scales, etudes, orchestra excerpts, and chamber/solo repertoire. It is a very welcoming, supportive and accepting online community, regardless of level or ability.

Our faculty are world-class performers as well as teachers, so some of them will perform a pre-masterclass concert to launch the series. Faculty will also select at least one student to perform a concert with them, at an in-person concert, hopefully this coming season. 

The price is $450 for participation in four masterclasses, and $250 for participation in two masterclasses. The price for auditing all of the masterclasses is $200. Registration provides access to all of the faculty masterclasses and pre-masterclass performances.

The deadline to register is Saturday, July 11th at 11:59PM. If you have any questions, or if you are interested in an application, please email us at asmionlinemasterclasses@gmail.com
