Kronberg Academy Masters ¦ An introduction by Stephen Potts
We have 2 courses at Kronberg Academy Masters providing exciting and unique musical training for gifted young soloists. The first course is a Master of Music (M.Mus) that combines studies at Kronberg Academy Masters with the Hochschule in Frankfurt. By pooling our resources and Professors we maximise the benefits. Most of the practical and career related studies are undertaken with us whilst the more formal aspects of the degree study are undertaken at the Hochschule. The second, Further Masters Studies, is aimed at providing continuing support after completion of the Master of Music.
Why study at Kronberg Academy? Well, clearly the Conservatoires do a good job but they have many young artists to manage every year and can’t give the kind of individual attention that we can provide to promoting the highest standards in music performance and career development. Nor can they provide the distinctive environment that is Kronberg Academy. Just look at our Professorial team: Ana Chumachenco and Christian Tetzlaff (Violin), Nobuko Imai (Viola), Frans Helmerson and Gary Hoffman (Cello) – a ‘dream’ team if ever one existed! There is also myself, someone with years of experience teaching and running specialist music schools and University departments, who, I like to think, is approachable, knowledgeable and with insight into being able to mentor every aspect of a young soloist’s career. Our Studios, with excellent acoustics and new Steinway pianos, match up to the best in the world and there is always a warm, friendly welcome from those who help run the course.
Yes, you have to have a special talent to join but so is great potential. If you are interested in discovering more why not browse the website at Kronberg Academy. Opening the door may prove a moment of inspiration!
