Private Lessons

Each student receives five private lessons from a faculty Students are asked to indicate their teacher preferences on the application form. Attendance of all scheduled lessons is compulsory; any missed lessons will not be refunded. Lessons missed due to illness or an emergency, may be rescheduled at the discretion of the private teacher. Additional lessons may be arranged and paid for directly with the desired teacher.


Advanced students will have the opportunity to perform in a public masterclass for a member of the Senior Division faculty. All students are encouraged to attend the many masterclasses which are given on a daily basis by faculty members and guests.

Chamber Music

We believe that chamber music is an essential part of a quality music education, especially in formative years. Students will rehearse with their groups daily, and will receive three coachings from a member of faculty. Groups and repertoire are assigned several months before the start of the festival to give ample time for preparation.

Student Recital

The intensive week of music-making will conclude with a recital. Students will have the opportunity to perform their solo and chamber music repertoire.

Day Trips and Sightseeing

Yerevan is a beautiful city with a vibrant cultural scene. All festival classes take place downtown, and students are just steps away from a multitude of sightseeing opportunities. Day trips to nearby attractions will be planned on free days.
