Easter- and summer courses 

De Vrienden Conservatorium Antwerpen vzw organises two music courses at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp in 2018. The first course takes place during the Easter holidays, the second during the Summer holidays. The courses are given by teachers from the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp and take place between 9:30 and 18:00. At 16:00 on the final day of the course a number of participants will be selected to present their work.

On the one hand the courses are aimed at young people still in secondary school, who are considering preparing themselves for the entrance exams at the conservatoire, and on the other hand at more advanced students of conservatoire level. Participants at preparatory level are offered a choice of the following:

  • instrument / voice (1 hour daily individual class with the teacher of his or her choice)
  • 4 x 1 ½ hour initiation in music theory
  • optional chamber music.

For participants at conservatoire level,  we offer a supplementary 1 hour daily individual class with the teacher of his or her own choice as well as chamber music.
