ONLINE PIANO LESSONS
WITH PROF. INGE ROSAR AND DR. KIRILL MONOROSI
About the Program
Piano Masterclasses focussing on Bach Interpretation have been running successfully all over the world for many years. This Course is given by Prof. Inge Rosar and Dr. Kirill Monorosi, the artistic directors of the International Piano Competition J. S. Bach in Memoriam Walter Blankenheim (formerly Saarbrücken and Würzburg, Germany).
Lessons take place in Tandem (alternating with both teachers). This online format continues with the idea behind the original (“Live”) Bach Courses: all participants remain in direct contact with all teachers for the duration of the course,and draw on the knowledge and experience of all teachers.
We would like to transfer the benefits of this team-teaching Masterclass format to the online platform. Both Prof. Rosar and Dr. Monorosi work together to provide each student with an individual lesson plan, taking into account the level, needs and goals of each student.
The lessons then take place from each teacher in turns (if required).
With this program, students have a unique opportunity of discovering the methods of two renowned Bach interpreters at the same time.
Support of Assistants
Assistants, who have completed studies with one of the head teachers and have a career of their own, are working with both key teachers. Depending on the level of the students, their repertoire, or goals, it may be suitable for them to have lessons with one of the assistant team. This is always under the supervision of the head teachers.
Every applicant has a 15 minute lesson (free of charge) from one of the head teachers.
This is to get to know each other and as an evaluation of finding the best way to arrive at the goals of the students.
The obligatory Trial Lesson is free.
Due to the cancellation of all activities with the Covid-19 crisis, and the economic impacts of the crisis, the International J. S. Bach Academy in Memoriam Walter Blankenheim has begun offering Online Bach Lessons at a strongly reduced rate.
Online Bach Lessons were offered from April 1st to the end of July 2020 at extremely
reduced prices. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to affect us, the change of lesson fees
to €200/60min will be postponed indefinitely; we will keep the rate at €85/60min.
We hope this decision will help everyone to handle their current financial situations better.
