The student must submit the repertoire that he or she would like to work on or improve during the session by uploading the details (titles, composers and edition) to Your Profile (Step 5) by May 1st, 2021 at the latest. You must be prepared to play the repertoire during masterclasses.

All the students can attend daily masterclasses. Generally, one or two masterclasses per week.

All students will participate in a master class with the guest faculty, as long as the level of preparation is deemed sufficient by the teachers. It is the student's responsibility to provide a repertoire that is sufficiently detailed to be presented in a master class.

N.B.: It is strictly forbidden to record or take photos during masterclasses without the guest musician’s prior approval, should this be the case, these recordings or photos must be kept solely for your private use.

Individual lessons
Participants will typically receive two to three individual lessons per week with the faculty professor of their choice.

We will try to favour a student’s first choice of professor but depending on circumstances and available spots in the classes, a student could be assigned his second or third choice of professor.

Rehearsals with piano as part of the sonata program
The students will work daily with their pianist on their repertoire of sonatas in preparation for the student concerts.

Students must bring photocopies of the piano scores of the works they will work on in masterclasses and give them to the pianists at the beginning of the session. These photocopies must already be bound.

Academy concerts or "Domaine on the Road" series
All chamber music groups will have the opportunity to perform in Academy concerts or in the "Domaine on the Road" series as long their teachers deem them ready.

Each participant must fully insure his/her instrument for the entire length of his/her session. Unfortunately, Domaine Forget does not rent or loan musical instruments.
