Strings, classical music, piano, and chamber music are taught in a beautiful castle in the Hessen region of Germany, which is famous for its white wine.

The sensei who teaches at the famous German music college welcomes all those who aspire to music.We will teach you not only advanced techniques but also basics.There is no age limit for attendance.
from March 2024th to May 7st
This course will be held in the town of Seeheim-Jugenheim, located in the middle of Bergstrasse, one of the tourist roads in southern Hesse, Germany. The venue was Heiligenberg Castle, located on a hill overlooking the cityscape. With views of vineyards stretching far into the distance, you'll be able to experience the best of Europe between lessons. Course subjects include violin, viola, cello, double bass, clarinet, piano, and chamber music. The focus is on individual solo lessons for each instrument, and chamber music is optional. If you only want private lessons, you can take 4 private lessons during the period. If you also choose chamber music, you will receive 2 private lessons and 2 chamber music lessons (4 lessons in total). It is also possible to have 3 lessons with just chamber music. This chamber music lesson has a slightly different feature from others. In most cases, participants of the same level form an ensemble and take lessons, but in this seminar, students joined the instructors and played together, which was a valuable lesson. you can get. The lecturers are mainly professors from two famous German music schools, the Mannheim University of Music and the Folkwang University of the Arts Essen. Sensei usually teaches advanced students and professionals, but in this course, he is not particular about the level of the students. For those who are at a professional level, we will teach professional level content, and for those who are not very familiar with the basics, we will focus on the basics. There is no particular age limit, and some of the younger participants are children as young as 2 years old. A public concert is scheduled for the last three days of the period, in which students selected by the professor can perform. In addition, there is a Japanese accompanist among the staff at the seminar, so you can rest assured that they will be able to provide Japanese assistance and interpretation.
