      Open Master Class Series: Chopin Mazurkas: Dances of the Soul

      Join pianist and IISM professor Alexandra Eames for an In-depth exploration of Chopin's Mazurkas, a highly stylized and exotic collection of dances. Chopin composed Mazurkas all his life; they outnumber all his other works. He was the first to bring these varied dance forms into the standard music literature, and they contain some of his most daring and inventive musical expressions. Pianist Alexandra Eames has spent decades studying these amazing pieces and has recorded many of them. Discover these marvelous dances and learn why musical notation cannot impart their unique flavor. Chopin wrote, "In Paris everyone wants Waltzes, but my pen keeps writing Mazurkas."

    InterHarmony International School of Music - Online

    Violin Master Class

    Designed by the organizers of InterHarmony International Music Festival, InterHarmony International School of Music offers intensive classical music instruction on all instruments in a year-round program, creating the possibility for students to study with the most renowned performers and scholars from around the globe without the trouble of travel.

    IISM’s professors teach at prestigious universities around the world, are members of acclaimed orchestras, soloists, and chamber musicians. They offer students global exposure to instruction not always available in their local area.

    Group shot of music students at InterHarmony International Music FestivalParticipants of the InterHarmony International School of Music will be automatically accepted to the InterHarmony International Music Festivals in Italy and Germany if they wish to apply. Virtual students will have the opportunity to meet professors in person at the InterHarmony International music festival, where those who studied virtually will study actually. Students of IISM can gain access to masterclasses and workshops provided by the IISM faculty and may submit applications for the Carnegie Hall InterHarmony Competition at a discounted rate.

    IISM provides an intensive musical experience each week without students or parents needing to leave the comfort and safety of their home. With many physical precollege and continuing education programs in an active society, students and parents take hours out of their week commuting to extracurricular activities, need to stay on location for several hours, before commuting back home again. InterHarmony International School of Music allows parents and participants a break from getting in the car or on a train one more time, and provides comparable if not better musical instruction for students.

    • The study of music is a high artistic pursuit, whether participants envision their studies leading to a future musical career, a hobby, or to become a future audience member. Even if they do not want to become a seasoned professional performer, everyone deserves the experience of studying music seriously and intensively.
