United in Music
We offer a unique, condensed study opportunity. Our artists will engage with you to discuss and review your chosen repertoire, assisting you in overcoming technical challenges. They will provide guidance on the techniques of your instrument and share their thoughts on the musical phrasing of your selected pieces. With piano accompaniment, you will have the chance to prepare for a concert performance. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with fellow students or teachers on interesting chamber music repertoire.
Playing with artists can be a truly transformative experience. You will learn from their expertise and gain insight into their creative process. You will also witness the passion and energy that goes into creating music. Collaborating with artists will broaden your appreciation for the power of teamwork, as you work together to create something unique and special. The collective energy of the group will inspire you to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Playing with artists can also challenge you to reach new heights, as you strive to achieve the same level of artistry as those you are playing with.
Music students and professionals:
Are you one of our future colleagues, preparing for a career as a professional musician? Are you already professional? Then you surely want to devote yourself to activities in the summer time, which can help you improve your artistic development.
We offer you a unique opportunity of short but plentiful study. Our artists will discuss and talk with you over your prepared repertory and help you to eliminate technical difficulties. They will guide you through the tricks of your instrument and will share with you their opinion on the musical phrasing of the selected music composition. You will have the opportunity to prepare yourself for the concert performance with piano accompaniment. Together with your colleagues of the same level or with your teachers, you’ll study interesting chamber music repertory. That’s why we will require a record and/or recommendation of your teacher for your participation in our program.
At the end of your study, you will receive a diploma, certifying your participation in Master Lessons of the I-AME MUSIC ACADEMY. We want to help you at the start of your artistic career.
Summer Music Camp for children:
We will be delighted if you join us at the Music Camp for Children in Prague. We look forward to meeting you and creating a nurturing and creative atmosphere for your musical journey.
We welcome children who are just starting to learn how to play their instruments, those who love to paint, talented musicians of all ages who have been pursuing their hobby for several years, and those who want to pursue music throughout their lives and think about a professional career or already study music and want to improve and consult with top artists.
The course fees include accommodation in student’s dormitory, lunch, snacks for children, and dinner for children who are accommodated. The children will stay under qualified supervision – starting from takeover from the parents until their return, we know where they are and what they do.
Our camp will provide you with the opportunity to concentrate on your instrument and delve into the secrets of music. You will also be able to perform at concerts in the beautiful conservatory hall. On some of them, you’ll hear from us, who will happily spend several wonderful summer days with you.
The jazz / Classical / Improvising Music Program:
The jazz / classical / improvising music program is independent courses for jazz players, students, and classical music students interested in jazz and impromptu music. For this program we will set up courses related to jazz, such as improvisation in chords, development of improvisational motives, application of jazz chords, mastery of jazz rhythms, and we will pick some practical jazz works to analyze with everyone playing.
For this program we will also set up a Jazz Band group. We will select some moderately difficult jazz standard pieces. Participants will get band rehearsal and solo training courses. We will divide the students into different small band groups for the training of the small band rehearsal classes, and reorganize and imitate different jazz works of different styles, as well as the playing methods of different musical instruments in the band. We will also conduct some targeted rehearsal courses for different musical instruments in the band’s improvisational thinking, as well as development and processing. The Jazz Band rehearsal course will be jointly completed with students and teachers who come to participate in I-AME Master Classes.
First of all, we will prepare the Jazz Band artwork for the rehearsal. Together with performances and rehearsals, we will also set up training sessions with respect to the structure, sounds, and functions of the Jazz Band’s various parts. We will also analyze and train the solo and accompaniment of different instruments in large band.
The program’s main coordinators and leaders are Cooper Shuwei Yuan – Guitar, Alexander Christianov – Piano, Ondřej Štajnochr – Double Bass and Bass Guitar, Tristan Michael Willems – Winds, Jaemin Lee – Drums.
Do you wish to devote yourself fully to your instrument and to enjoy one-hour lessons with your teacher every day of the week? Choose one instrument. You can choose with whom you would like to study and we will try to give you this opportunity. In your free time you may attend the lessons given by any teacher. You will also play in a chamber ensemble and you will perform with the prepared repertory at the concert, if your teacher suggest. We assume that you will spend your leisure time practicing and exercising on your instrument, to be able to improve in time for your next lesson.
Do you play two instruments and want to devote and pay attention to both of them? Decide, which of them is the main one, and which the second one – you’ll have 30 minutes’ lessons for each. The tuition will be slightly increased for this option. You’ll play in a chamber ensemble and you’ll perform at the concert. It will be needed you spend your free time by practicing, as we will require you to be prepared.
This is designed for all children of the music camp younger than 14 years. Solo lessons will be shortened to 45 minutes, to be able to manage the fine art and creative program. During the creative program they will enjoy a lot of fun and they will create together an absolutely unique concert performance.
“Everyone, when they are young, knows what their destiny is. Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth. To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
