Master course (music education)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A master class is an instrumental or singing class given by a renowned artist. The course, which usually lasts several days and takes place during the semester break, can be attended by advanced music students - the so-called master students - for a fee and sometimes only after passing an entrance exam. For example, from 1959/60 onwards, guitar master classes were held for the first time annually in July and August at the Nice Music Academy.

In numerous international festivals, master classes are offered as a side program. However, there are also summer academies that specialize in masterclasses par excellence, such as the Franz Schubert Institute in Baden near Vienna for song interpretation .
