Daily schedule:

1 hour sessions, 45 minutes playing and 15 minutes break. Each hour we change topics. Every 2nd or 3rd session will be taught by a specific instructor focusing on his specific area of expertise and choice of material.

We will use two rooms, so we will do entire group sessions and then split up.

The faculty will perform in various combinations at our evening concerts. (maybe some student ensembles as well)

6:00 Evening Faculty Concerts are open to the Public, free admission
