Flute program

Masterclasses will be held daily and are intended for flutists seeking to grow as musicians, improve technique and looking for performance opportunities while enjoying a culturally stimulating setting with other instrumentalists.


Classes will provide instruction on how to build your own chamber ensemble and career in music. Coachings on solo and chamber repertoire will help students present more creative and interpretive performances. Students will present this repertoire in live recitals in Hungary. Classes will also cover topics such as:

Tone and Technical Development
Improving Breath Control
Audition Success
Performance Anxiety
Music Entrepreneurship
... and more.
