The course is open to professional flutists and conservatory students, without age limits, who have a distinguished passion for contemporary repertoire and its languages. There will be a maximum number of 7 participants.

The premises of CdM allow for an optimal space in a controlled acoustics hall for the main lessons, as well as several personal spaces for studying and a garden and Spa for relaxing.

The participants are invited to present a series of pieces from the solo and ensemble contemporary repertoire on which they would like to have lessons. The chosen participants will be asked to send ahead of the course the list of pieces so the classes can be organised optimally. 

Every participant will benefit from one individual lesson per day, complemented by several collective classes focusing on different subjects. Among them :
* Breathing and Mobility exercises that are necessary to face contemporary repertoire
* Contemporary flute techniques
* Repertoire’s key pieces score study from solo and chamber music contemporary repertoire
* How to interpret notation
* How to collaborate with a composer

A final public concert, organised by Foresty International Music Festival, will allow the students a closing experience, concluding the course with a practical application of the skills and repertoire learned and deepened during the week.

For a unique learning experience and an immersion in the study and practice of the contemporary flute, it is possible to participate in both consecutive contemporary flute masterclasses at a special price:
