@ Atelier R. Smits
‘Up Close & Personal with maestra Raphaella Smits’ just got better and more personal than ever ...
edition 2017 will be held for the first time in the ‘Atelier R. Smits’ in Kontich (Belgium).
Do you want to prepare for an entrance exam, or for a graduation exam? Or do you just want to improve your guitar skills, professional or basic? Then our UC&P-Summerclass is what you need.
Raphaella Smits, for decades internationally praised as a great performer, is also well known as an inspiring teacher for both guitar and chamber music. In addition to her chair at the Lemmens Institute in Belgium, she gives master classes worldwide. Following her lessons will leave you with an unforgettable impression.
From Tuesday 1 to Sunday 6 August 2017, Raphaella will give master classes to a limited number of participants at her own workshop. Every student will receive a maximum number of individual lessons. Chamber music classes are optional, depending on the requests. A closing concert by the participants will conclude a week of hard work on Sunday August 6, at 3 pm. Grab this unique opportunity to enhance your guitar playing, to learn new repertoire and to forge lifelong friendships.
This is not a residential course: the lessons will start daily at 2 pm and finish around 6 pm. Immediately afterwards we end each day with supper, with all the participants cozy at La Smits's family table. After that, the students will stay in the area, in an accommodation of their choice (youth hostel, b&b, hotel) according to their self-planned arrangements.
The participation fee for this non-residential six-day summer course is 300€ (included all evening meals). The application form will be sent to you upon request to : academix vzw.
The deadline is July 1st 2017. First come, first served!
