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, 7- 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.
2018 is the year of Cultural Heritage. Kate Clark will give an inspiring Workshop about that theme. There will be a workhop about 'Connecting with Music' by Otto de Jong. Furthermore, there is a workshop about stage presentation, you will discover various ways to warm-up (eg yoga) and you will also have the opportunity to work on your posture with Alexander technique expert, Maaike Aarts.
Monday- and Thursday evenings will be free evenings, with a BBQ on Thursday and an optional walk
together through part of the beautiful Veluwezoom National Park. You will have time to play ensembles and of
course, during and between the course sessions, there will be plenty of
time to get to know your fellow flautists!
The final concert with flute orchestra, ensembles and solos, will be on stage of the Recital Hall of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam! We are honoured to have solo trombonist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Jörgen van Rijen
as our guest soloist!
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!
