Our Academy has had several musical projects which have all contributed to the students' personal musical development. Those projects have not only the purpose of developing students' musical performance skills but also to give them knowledge of musical history.
The students learn how to work independently as well as how to work as a group.The creativity of the projects has had the effect of inspiring students and consequently becoming more involved with the music. For instance, the ''Carl Reinecke project'' involved the learning of less known sonatinas by the composer the performances of which were then recorded. Beforehand students researched the music and became more involved by finding images which they believed related to the music. After this we used those images to make videos for the recordings. By doing this project we marked the centenary of Carl Reinecke's death. This further educated the students of his biography and creative work.Our recordings of Reinecke sonatinas can be heard here
This is only a single example of the many musical projects that are part of our Academy's life. To listen to the music of our other projects including the above you can visit this website or on youtube.either on
Some of our projects also involve the meeting of famous performing musicians and educators and learning from their experience
