Old Ox Master Classes – No Fee

Recieve your lessons by Zoom with our world-class professors online from where you live

No course fee, 7.5 ECTS credits

The course will take place on Old Ox webpage and Old Ox Zoom in 25 different viritual classrooms.

The course is also part of the Royal College of Music’s ”Additional Training Programs” which provides participating students with 7.5 ECTS credits = No course fee

The event is a unique opportunity to receive advice for your further musical and career development, to meet and get inspired by outstanding professors, as well as expanding and developing your international network.

Become an integral part of a performing arts community of which many of the world’s most important performers are also members.

Over 6 500 amazing young artists from 50 countries have participated in Old Ox masterclasses and festivals.


World record?

From 2006 to 2019, our master classes and festivals have always taken place live in Sweden.

In 2020, we, like everyone else, had to adapt to the pandemic and implemented everything digitally instead. It was a great success and possibly a world record with 23 professors, 320 students from 30 countries worked together via our Zoom platform.

In 2021, we will once again implement everything digitally in a corresponding way. This means that all professors have their own OLD OX- Zoom class room with us where each class gathers and where everyone receives individual master classes.

In addition, everyone will receive various digital seminars about chamber music and orchestral playingas part of the course.

All participants in the course also have access to all about 25 professors’ viritual classrooms to take part in the teaching of others.

In case…

We are prepared for the fact that if the pandemic / vaccine development develops extremely positively before the summer, we will possibly invite a limited number (voluntarily in that case) professors and students to Stockholm to conduct master classes and concerts on site.
