Each student will have at least five solo lessons during CSI. Besides solo lessons students have to participate in the symphony orchestra based on the faculty's decision. Students may also choose from several subcourses, such as chamber music, jazz- improvisation, baroque ensemble, piano four-hands and some special 3-4 day courses. Students will also work with staff pianists and will have the opportunity to practise every day. Each student will perform at the sectional closing concert, in addition to this they might have further performing possibilities based on their teacher’s recommendation. Last but not least, there will be several free concerts, lectures and different community programs offered to participants.
This sample schedule has been created to give students a general idea of the programs at CSI.
