    Introduction

    • 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.
