All timpani/Percussion: workshops, masterclasses and coursesThe timpani and percussion courses offer training for both top orchestras and aspirations for solo performance. The study program's main goal is to help students grow into creative individuals who can confidently meet the demands of the modern music industry. The foundation for this is the encouragement of creativity and independence, as well as thorough technical and musical training.
The training is possible as an artistic or instrumental pedagogical study. Individual focuses can be set with different elective modules. This guarantees a broadly diversified and individual training. This also includes preparation for various competitions in solo and chamber music.
Ensemble projects with other musicians of the courses and workshop orchestras or the big band provide important practical experience. The corresponding stage practice guarantees regular podium concerts.
