ASMI will be hosting its next series of live online masterclasses on Saturday & Sunday, Nov.7-8 & Nov.14-15. Born during the COVID-19 outbreak, the online masterclasses were a resounding success. 

The online masterclasses function like in-person masterclasses, hosted on Zoom. Each student receives at least 30 minutes of individual feedback per masterclass, while other students listen, followed by Q&A. Registered students receive access to all masterclasses and faculty performances. It is open to violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano, guitar, and chamber ensembles. There are no age or level requirements and there will be will be a final student recital.

Pricing is below:
$450 – four masterclasses
$350 – three masterclasses
$250 – two masterclasses
$150 – one masterclass
  $85 – auditing all masterclasses

We are also introducing chamber music masterclasses! Each ensemble must be preformed, and will receive four masterclasses lasting at least 40 mins. each. Pricing is below:
$700 – quartet
$600 – trio
$500 – duo

There are limited full and half scholarships available. Scholarship applicants must submit two contrasting pieces via YouTube link(s) on their application. Teachers will select one student to perform with faculty at an in-person chamber concert, during a future season. 

The new application deadline is Thursday, Oct.29th and the registration deadline is Saturday, October 31st, both at 11:59PM (EST). All applicants must fill out the application at the bottom, and email it to:
