Mega cool week full of learning and inspiration. Great group of  flute players from all over the world and beautiful music. Learned a lot and would love to come back!

 

Was a super week. My flute playing has improved a lot and I found the week very practical. It was a great experience and I would love to do it again.

 

One of the greatest weeks of the year!

 

It;s been a fantastich week with a fantastic group. The teachers are all very nice and helpful, and there was a positive cooperation with the YIPers. We all have learned a lot.

 

Each of us had a few individual lessons that helped me a lot with improving my flute playing. During the week you all work together toward the concert by doing workdhops, masterclasses and rehearsals with the flute orchestra. The last day is the concert in the Concertgebouw and everyone is looking forward to that.

Applications

You apply with an application form, a video* and a letter of recommendation from your teacher. Click the red button and you arrive on the application page. Shortly after after the closing date (April 19) you’ll hear if we can offer you a place.
