Partnering with the Chopin Foundation of the United States, and with the generous support of the M. Lee Pearce Foundation and the Miami Salon Group, the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami presents the 2021 all-virtual Frost Chopin Academy and Festival, offering pianists up to the age of 30 the opportunity to immerse themselves in the works of Fryderyk Chopin and learn first-hand from the world’s most distinguished Chopin specialists. Masterclasses, lectures, and performances are open to the public and free of charge.

4 Individual Lessons • Masterclasses/Lectures • Livestreamed Festival Performances

“…an incredible opportunity to watch and perform in masterclasses with the world’s top Chopin specialists.”
Talon Smith, 15, Fresno (Frost Chopin Academy student 2018)

4 Individual Lessons:

The Academy offers every participant lessons with each of our master teachers. Unlike the typical masterclass setting which offers a more generalized commentary on performance, the private nature of these sessions allows teacher and student to address more pertinent performance issues that relate to each student’s specific needs. All lessons focus exclusively on the works of Chopin.

Masterclasses/Lectures:

The Academy will feature specialized masterclasses and lectures fashioned to help participants with specific issues surrounding the performance of Chopin’s works. Our guest artists will also share their specialized knowledge of Chopin’s life and works in the form of lectures which will be open to the public.

Livestreamed Festival Performances:

Every evening, students and the general public will have the opportunity to attend live recitals of Chopin’s music performed by our teaching artists. These interpretational demonstrations are vital learning experiences for our students to understand the effective execution of Chopin’s works on stage.
