Leipzig – April 2017

2017/04/20 09:00 - 2017/04/23 16:00


This year’s Spring Academy in Leipzig presents a few new elements and changes which mostly result from our years long experience organizing academies and which will bring still more added value to the participants:

  • A pianist will be there to accompany the student’s concert, the daily masterclasses, the chamber music classes, and, if you you want, your individual lesson(s).
  • A “guest” package (*) can be booked by newcomers. It contains the participation in an introductory lesson (60 min.) for those who never played a theremin before and who want to discover it, the entrance to the public concert and the public workshop, and a listener’s place during the final student’s concert.
  • To simplify registration and accounting, we created a package, too, for all active participants (**): It includes both workshops, Carolina about Vibrato and Thierry about Musical Expression, the entrance to the public concert and the public workshop, use of rehearsal rooms during the academy, and the fees for the pianist during the student’s concert. You might add individual lessons, further workshops, the chamber music class and daily masterclasses “à la carte” to your registration as before.
  • Susanne Schlusnus, professional oboist and physiotherapist will offer a workshop titled “Warm up and body awareness” as a guest lecturer.

Colmar – July 2017

  • This year’s Summer Academy in Colmar (already the 8th!!!) will be held from Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 to Sunday, July 16th, 2017 including. As always, Carolina Eyck and Thierry Frenkel will be there to teach everybody from beginners up to professional players by offering individual and group lessons, workshops, and much more.
  • To ease registration and accounting, we’ll apply a basic package pricing model to which participants may add individual lessons and more.
  • Your Theremin needs to be serviced or upgraded? Thierry will care about it!
  • After her workshop about general movement optimization and relaxation was highly appreciated last year, Masha Frenkel will make a more differentiated offer about different theremin related topics this year.
  • Two chamber music classes will be offered by Thierry this time. Class I will be “Colmar only” for participants who wish to partake in ensemble playing without further binding. Class II will be for players who intend to partake in an extended program on which we will work during the summer academy in Colmar, the chamber music days in Liverpool and the fall academy in Lippstadt, aiming to perform in public on November 18th, 2017.
  • We will continue to offer the successful “daily masterclass”, allowing the participants to work each day on a different popular piece of music for theremin.
