PRAGUE PIANO MASTER COURSES 2016

A retreat for immersive piano study in Prague, Czech Republic


FACULTY

DAVID KALHOUS, Florida State University

JOEL HASTINGS (in memoriam), Florida State University

 

DATES

Thursday, June 30 - Wednesday, July 13, 2016. Students are expected to arrive in Prague on Wednesday, June 29.
For students staying at the Hotel Markéta (see below), transportation from the airport can be arranged through the hotel with advance notice. It is the responsibility of the student to make this arrangement with the hotel prior to arrival. Lessons will begin on June 30. Each student will receive four one-hour lessons, and all students will have the opportunity to play in a masterclass with Faculty teachers, as well as a public recital in Prague. 

EXPENSES

Tuition $550 USD ($450 for lessons & masterclasses, $100 for facilities/administrative fee)

$100 facilities/administrative fee is to be paid directly to the applicant's main instructor by June 1st, 2016.

$450 payment is due on the first day of the retreat, June 30. Airfare, hotel, and meals are not included and are the student's responsibility.

LOCATION

All private lessons, masterclasses, and practice sessions will take place at the Jan Hanuš Art School.

ACCOMODATIONS AND MEALS

Students are responsible for booking their own hotel accommodations. We strongly suggest booking a room at the nearby Hotel Marketa (website below) which is a short walking distance from the school.  Sharing rooms decreases the cost considerably. We require that all participants find lodging within a half mile from the location of the school.

Hotel Markéta offers a special long-stay rate that includes breakfast (last year's rate was around $45 USD/night). All other meals are at the student's expense. There is a grocery store close to the hotel and school, and many restaurants nearby.

OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS

Excursions can be arranged through Ecce Prague, a company specializing in educational trips. Interested students should contact David Kalhous by May 15.
