At the University of Music Würzburg all orchestral instruments are taught by internationally renowned faculty. Training at the highest level is guaranteed by 90 minutes of private lessons a week, participation in the Symphony Orchestra and in chamber music ensembles, as well as free Master Classes with guest faculty. As always, the focus lies in the preparation for orchestra auditions. In addition, regular internal recitals are given and competent information is provided in all classes about important orchestra positions.
Along with the transmission of necessary standard knowledge in musicological and theoretical subjects, there are offerings for additional qualifications in historical performing practices, contemporary music, jazz and popular music, as well as participation in relevant concerts and festivals. Internships with various Bavarian orchestras – for which one qualifies through an audition – insures optimal preparation for a later professional career.
