Masterclasses are offered in each instrument. Any Academy student is eligible to perform, based on his or her private teacher's nomination. Masterclasses are taught by our faculty, as well as internationally known guest artists.

Private lessons, taught by the Academy's artist faculty, are offered in violin, viola, cello, and bass.

We consider chamber music experience essential to the highest development of musical ability. Therefore, each student participates in a small ensemble, with regular coachings by our artist faculty.

Concerto workshops provide opportunities for students to rehearse and perform their concertos with full orchestra accompaniment on a regular basis. This is an offering unique to the Academy, not offered elsewhere in the region. 

All Academy students benefit from music theory classes, strengthening their musicianship, aural and reading skills, and understanding of the structure of music.

Performance opportunities are available to each Academy student on a regular basis, in recitals presented for both solo and chamber works.
