Music Mandala is much more than a regular masterclass for musicians: It is founded on the belief in a holistic concept, bringing together internationally renowned teachers and performers from the sphere of classical music with experienced and skilled teachers from the practices of Yoga, Tai Chi, K.I. and Sound Meditation. The aim of Music Mandala is to create a space for a deeper exploration of one’s self and of music performed and studied every day.

Music Mandala welcomes all and includes solo and chamber music coaching, both for existing groups and those looking to explore repertoire with other members on the course. Students will receive a minimum of four individual lessons with instrumental teachers and lessons can be freely divided between Solo Repertoire and Chamber Music. There will also be daily lessons in Yoga, Tai Chi, WeiChi, K.I., Sound Meditation as well as Evening meditation and students can choose from a varied programme offered by two different teachers. (These lessons will take place outside, allowing for a large amount of space.) The location, Asolo in Italy, is a picturesque, peaceful and historic setting, and students can stay in the masterclass venue, the Villa Flangini.  All of this is included in the course fee. For an additional cost there are private Italian lessons and excursions to Venice and/or Bassano del Grappa available.

The situation with Covid-19 is being closely monitored but at the moment the organisation is optimistic and totally committed to have a safe and successful week.
