Seminars for Israeli Violin and Viola Students and their Teachers, aimed at stimulating and encouraging violin playing in Israel, held twice annually, led by senior Keshet Eilon faculty.
Some 80 young violinists and violists from all parts of the country arrive for three days of intensive study. Each student receives three personal lessons from a senior faculty member, and takes part in enrichment activities including playing in ensembles and attending concerts and masterclasses. Some of the participants come from music institutions in the Arab sector, and this interaction fosters personal connections through music. We at Keshet Eilon believe that once the participants return to their homes and families, they become ambassadors of music study to all who surround them.
Significantly, the number of young Israeli violinists who have been accepted in the International Keshet Eilon International Summer Mastercourse has increased significantly ever since the Seminar program was initiated.
In its effort to nurture violin study for excellence, Keshet Eilon supports students in various ways, including loans of instruments for students who cannot afford to purchase them; scholarships to cover part of the seminar tuition; and use of our unique Music Library, including facilities to photo-copy notes open to all students and their teachers.
