Summer Academy (YIP)
Young International Professionals (YIP)
YIP-ers have completed or are about to complete a full time flute study and are not older than 30. YIP participants come from all over the world.
We offer you an intensive and inspiring, 8- day flute summer school at a dream location! Together with your fellow YIP-ers (a group of 12 participants in total) and 15 NTK-ers you will take part in one-to-one lessons, themed lessons, masterclasses, technical clinics, coaching sessions with pianist Andrew West
, flute orchestra, warm-ups with and without flute and workshops.
A team of experienced teachers is ready for you at Neflac! Emily Beynon
for the individual lessons and masterclasses, and Wieke Karsten
for the technical clinics. In addition, we offer workshops in music-related topics. In 2017 we had stage presentation (soprano Roberta Alexander
), extended techniques (flautist Gareth McLearnon
) and Dalcroze/rhythm (percussionist Glenn Liebaut
). We will start each day with a group warm-up session and on one day this will be yoga class and on another, chi kung! You will also have the opportunity to work on your posture with Alexander technique expert, Maaike Aarts
. Thursday evening will be a free evening, with a BBQ and an optional walk together through part of the beautiful Veluwezoom National Park. And of course, during and between the course sessions, there will be plenty of time to get to know your fellow flautists!
The weekend is reserved for three concerts with flute orchestra, ensembles and solos, with the final concert on stage of the Recital Hall of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam!
All parts of the programme are held in English and therefore everyone is expected to have a good understanding and usage of the English language.
Come and be inspired and motivated by this team of top professionals and by one another. The Netherlands Flute Academy is there for you!
The price includes all board and lodging, tuition fees and transport from Rhederoord to Amsterdam. Extra drinks and all alcoholic drinks to be paid by the participant.
If you are NOT offered a place on the course, the registration fee will be refunded.Selection processInformation/conditions
