The Berlin academy is quite a premiere and, at the same time, an old friend. In fact, it’s the ancient Leipzig academy which, after 5 successful years, moves now over to Berlin.

Information for active participants
Equipment and presence
Please bring at least your own theremin, cables, and theremin stand. A few amplifiers and music stands are available at the music school. Please make sure, too, that you can be present during the whole academy time, so that we might schedule lessons and classes without constraints.
Stay and food
We are new to Berlin, too. Thus, we haven’t yet any recommendations for your stay. But we think that AirBnb or couch surfing will be the cheapest and easiest options during the May holiday season. Besides the common Brunch on Sunday morning, everybody will have to care for their own food. Both locations, the music school and the museum are in relatively central places, so that we are optimistic that nobody will have to starve… Traditionally, people have dinner together in small groups at a restaurant of their choice.
