About the masterclasses 

Masterclasses for Violin, Viola, Violoncello and Chamber Music

The courses of the Summer Academy Leutkirch are mainly for young, talented musicians who want to prepare for their studies, already study or want to improve their skills after graduation.

The Courses take place at various locations in Leutkirch, and will be held usually between around 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on consultation with the lecturers. Listeners are welcome. The courses include:

• individual lessons,
• groupe lessons (e.g. technique lesson),
• professional piano accompaniment,
• admittance to all concerts (listener),
• many internal and public concerts for participants
• course organization.

The courses offer the full range of working on instrumental-specific technique up to artistic elaboration of compositions.

The number of participants and the high artistic level show: The summer academy is a successful model. In years of very productive cooperation, the City of Leutkirch, the team of the vhs Leutkirch and the artistic director (until 2015) and Ludwigsburg-based pianist Holger Spegg created a great base for master classes which good reputation goes passed the borders of Germany. Applications arrive from all over the word, including the USA, Canada, Brasil, Argentina, Columbia, Taiwan, Japan, China, Korea, Russia, the Ukraine, Newsealand, Portugal, Poland, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Czech Republic, Israel, France, Luxembourg and so on.

Financial support we got from various sponsors:

• The OEW Cultural Foundation
• Messrs. Hutter Travel
• Die Leutkircher Bank
• The Art and Culture Foundation of LBBW
• The Bertold Leibinger Fondation and
• The company elobau.
