Order of application along with balance of instruments must always be considered, so you are encouraged to apply by or before the deadline.
Cellists needing help with cello rental should also apply as early as possible. Cello rental in most locations is possible with sufficient notice.
If we indicate a student price, questions about student status may be address to Musical Passages. Sometimes partial scholarships are available.
Non-players are always welcome, space permitting. Many non-playing friends have joined us in the past.
Musical Passages does not provide transportation to or from the county and place of the workshop. However, every effort is made to provide information to participants to help them make their own travel arrangements. Some locations can be reached entirely by public transportation. Others require private car or taxi for at least part of the trip. Travel insurance is strongly advised.
Fees may be paid in Euros, but special arrangements can be made to pay in $US or UK Pounds. For direct bank transfers please see the Application page.
Refunds after deadlines are at the discretion of Musical Passages. Refund Policy is listed below.
