Our Summer Music Camps welcome gifted young students of violin, viola, cello and piano into a richly supportive musical community. Musicians from around the world, ages 8-18, are welcome during summer time to spend several weeks on our beautiful and safety region at the Swiss Alps.
The heart of our Summer Camps teaching philosophy lies in the development of the whole person – not just the musician. A rigorous yet non-competitive approach creates a nurturing environment, where each student is encouraged to take risks and discover their individual voice. Performance opportunities every week give students the chance to refine their repertoire for supportive audiences as well.
Different outdoor activities and excursions are also carried out during the camp.
We recommend campers to spend a minimum of 2 weeks with us, since during the first days, children get acclimated to the place and new friends, and it is from the third day on that they usually begin to enjoy the experience to the fullest.
We would love to welcome all candidates who wish to register, however our school keeps the family spirit also in summer, so the number of places is limited. Reservations are processed in strict order of arrival until cover the maximum quota.
