Virtual Master Classes by the
World’s Great Orchestral Musicians
Starting Oct. 5, 2020

Introducing Ossia! Orchestral Academy, a new initiative by Classical Movements, a series of exclusive private virtual masterclasses featuring some of the finest orchestral musicians from around the United States and the world. Musicians hail from the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonics, Minnesota and Philadelphia Orchestras, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Utah, St. Louis, and National Symphonies.  Classical Movements brings its illustrious orchestral clients and colleagues to your computer screen for unique personal instruction!

Students receive up to six hours of live virtual small-group classes over three weeks with a world-class teaching artist. Each student receives direct instruction with the artist and a spot in the virtual showcase at the end of the term. This intimate and special series is limited to no more than five students per session.  * Some faculty may be available for more than one class per term, dependent on demand.  

Total teaching hours will be adjusted to fit the number of students in each class. Each student will still have at least one session of one-on-one work with the teacher.

Pricing in the range of $375-450 per student per term.
