Kronberg Academy Partner
At the Kronberg Academy, selected young violinists, violists and cellists can go through a tailor-made degree program that is tailored to their individual needs – both in terms of content and time.
The cooperation with the University of Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt am Main enables them to acquire a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. Selected young pianists are involved through the “Sir András Ship Performance Program for Young Pianists”, which focuses on chamber music.
In 2007, the Kronberg Academy has set up an excellence study program. Five specially designed courses are aimed at young exceptional talents who want to harmonise artistic education at the highest level with work as a professional performing artist.
The Kronberg Academy works with renowned musicians who regularly teach their own classes or as guest lecturers give internal masterclasses . The members of the artistic advisory board as well as well-known conductors are actively involved in the curriculum of the students.
The Kronberg Academy is a training center and inspiration for musicians of all generations. It brings together exceptionally gifted young violinists, violists and cellists with the great artists of our time to share their experiences, ideas and values with them and to help them mature into artists.
It creates a place where musical values are lived, musical ideas ignite, a new generation of musical pioneers grows up and we can experience classical music in all its power and beauty up close.
