A reduced group of very gifted children attend the Negri Violin Program at the School while some of them gain experience playing the viola in chamber music. We also welcome students for whom the viola is their principal instrument.
Each week all students have three individual lessons on their main instrument with their principal teacher and 1-2 lesson by the assistant if needed.
In addition to the weekly classes, the students also rehears regularly with the piano accompanist on the repertoire they are working at that time.
Students also profit from attending concerts and general rehearsals performed by the great artists who every year visit the region for the different music festivals, such as the Sommets Musicaux winter festival or the Yehudi Menuhin Festival in summer.
We also invite recognised pedagogues and soloists who inspire our students through personal encounters and masterclasses.
