Applications Open for Stauffer Center for Strings Masterclasses [APPLY]

Applications are open for masterclasses occurring during the 2021/22 school year

 

Stauffer Center for Strings has opened applications for their exclusive masterclass program, for which Stauffer has gathered some of the most appreciated and influential artists on the international music scene. The Faculty of the Stauffer Academy includes more than 30 outstanding new teachers, many of whom are gathered together for the first time in a single academy.

The Stauffer Foundation and original Academy were founded in 1970 by Swiss philanthropist Walter Stauffer, with the core mission of providing one of the worlds best training programs for string musicians, traditional violin-making, and musicology — which has stayed steadfast today.

The Stauffer Center for Strings will aim to not only focus on enhancing a player’s performance, but also give its musicians a much broader perspective on what classical music is and what it can do.

"The Stauffer Center for Strings will take an extremely integrated approach to our student's training, and it is our goal to send our graduates into their professional careers armed with the tools they need not only to thrive in today’s new music industry, but to also be able to recognize and identify further ways of constantly improving upon it," new Stauffer Center for Strings Director General Paolo Petrocelli this week told The Violin Channel.
