A master class is a class where an expert teaches individual students in public. Master classes are held by acknowledged, respected and experienced artists and are designed to help not only the student in his/her quest for improvement but to do so in front of an audience, enabling everyone to observe and to learn from the ongoing process.
Active participants of a master class come primarily from our own student body and either have been selected by the corresponding department or have been chosen through the process of an audition. Space and time permitting, students from other music institutions may be offered a chance to actively participate as well.
Students, teachers and staff of the YPM Music School can generally observe theses master classes for free. Visitors not actively enrolled or employed at SM YPM are usually required to pay a small admission fee.
