Old Ox Music – European Master Classes – KMH Stockholm 2021
digital master classes and seminars
No course fee, 7.5 ECTS credits
The course will take place on Old Ox webpage and Old Ox Zoom in 25 different 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 performers, 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.
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 room with us where each class gathers and where everyone receives individual master classes.
In addition, everyone will receive various digital seminars as part of the course with, among other things, the theme of chamber music and orchestral playing, etc.
All participants in the course also have access to all about 25 professors’ classrooms to take part in the teaching of others.
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.
All about 300 participants in this digital course may / can / must complete:
– Individual digital master classes by listed professor via Zoom
– Group lessons / Open Classes by listed professor via Zoom
– Seminars with subsequent written assignments
– Participate as a passive listener in, other than your asigned professor / instrument, master classes
NOTE! You have to be a citizen of countries in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.
