This program is intended to develop highly skilled musicians and prepare them for a career in music performance. The program is efficient and intensive, consisting of twelve hours of intensive training with experts. The idea is to establish a mentorship between experienced musicians and students.


All Intensive Masterclasses will be small group sessions for twelve students, for 12 hours, over the course of 3 days. Masterclasses will not be open to the public.

Students will be invited on a full scholarship. Twelve students will be selected by audition tape. Each student will be ensured an equal amount of performance time and the BMI specialists will work in their specific area and give insight into their historical, traditional style.

Students from overseas will also have the opportunity to exchange their knowledge, inspiration, and motivation during the course.



All masterclasses are open to young instrumentalists between the ages of 18 and 30. Everyone accepted into the program will receive a full fellowship. BMI does not provide housing or transportation. All participants must attend for the full 12 hours.


The Facility

Masterclasses by Berlin Philharmonic members will be at Berlin Philharmonie concert hall, Berlin, Germany 

Masterclasses by Boston Symphony members will be at Symphony Hall, Boston, U.S.A
