Tuition: $800 USD ($600 for lessons & master classes, $200 for facilities/administrative fee)
Payment is due in full by April 30, 2018, and is to be paid directly by check.  Other payment options are possible. A limited amount of scholarships might be available.  Please contact the Festival at praguepiano@gmail.com for specific payment instructions and inquiries about scholarships.   
Airfare, hotel, and meals are not included and are the student's responsibility.

LOCATION

All private lessons, master classes, and practice sessions will take place at the Jan Hanus Art School in Prague, Czech Republic.

ACCOMMODATIONS AND MEALS

Students are responsible for booking their own hotel accommodations. We strongly suggest booking a room at the nearby Hotel Marketa, which is a short walking distance from the school.  Sharing rooms decreases the cost considerably. All participants must find lodging within a half mile from the location of the school. There are several other hotels and Airbnb options in the area.

Hotel Marketa 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 several affordable restaurants nearby.

TRANSPORTATION

For students staying at the Hotel Marketa, 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.

OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS

Excursions after July 20 can be arranged through Ecce Prague, a company specializing in educational trips for students.  Interested students should contact the Festival at praguepiano@gmail.com by May 15.
