Masterclass March

Masterclasses violin, viola, cello, piano and string quartet

Get ready for the 14th spring edition of the Schiermonnikoog Festival! A familiar part of the festival is the masterclasses under the guidance of world-renowned teachers and musicians. Participation in the masterclass is a unique opportunity to concentrate on musical growth in the tranquility and peacefulness of Schiermonnikoog, one of the most beautiful islands in the Netherlands. In addition, the festival offers support in other aspects that are relevant to professional growth.

Next to the masterclasses for individual musicians, we offer a masterclass for (existing) string quartets by Marc Danel.
