Each student will have at least five solo lessons during Crescendo Summer Institute (CSI). Besides solo lessons selected students will participate in the symphony orchestra based on the faculty's decision. Students will be able to practise on a daily basis and will also work with staff pianists.

Students may also choose from the following subcourses: chamber music / jazz-improvisation / baroque ensemble. On the myCSI application form students may also request to be assigned to a certain teacher. Choice will be taken into consideration, but unfortunately cannot be guaranteed.

Students will have the possibility to perform at the sectional closing concert. They might be offered further performing possibilities based on their teacher’s recommendation. Last, but not least, several concerts, lectures and social programs will be offered to participants for free.
