for which level is the academy?

For young advanced percussionists of all nationalities (minimum age is 14), teachers and professionals.

what to prepare?

We would like you to prepare at least one solo piece (Marimba or Vibra or Snare, … ) and a Snare-Drum Etude. This way we will have a better opportunity to work together on details and you might be able to perform in the „Percussion-Lab“ concert. But also a pure orchestral audition program is a great base to work on. Don’t hesitate or worry about your level!

should I bring own instruments?

At the Academy you will find brand new instruments that have been provided by our partners ADAMS, Thomann-Music & Zultan-Cymbals & Kolberg-Percussion. If possible, we would like to ask you to bring a Snare Drum stand and a practice pad. We also recommend that you bring your own Tambourine.
