We are back!
The Kitakaruizawa Music Seminar returns to the beautiful countryside of Japan this year! This intensive summer seminar is directed by Charles Neidich and Ayako Oshima, of the Juilliard School. Participants will thoroughly learn what it means to perform, diving into the basics of the clarinet to advanced techniques, the interpretation of major works, and the exploration of deeper expressive power. Since our beginning in 2005, we have had over 300 students from all over the world.
