The Internationale Sommerakademie Bad Leonfelden is held in Bad Leonfelden, a charming little town in the Mühlviertel, a beautiful area in Upper-Austria. It is approximately 30 km from Linz, easily reachable from both Vienna and Salzburg.

The master classes take place in a relaxed but focused atmosphere. Each active participant will receive a minimum of three 60min or four 45min lessons, respectively. A semi-active participant a minimum of two 45min lessons. String quartets will receive a minimum of six 60min lessons or four 90min lessons, respectively. Everyone must be ready for her/his first lesson at the beginning of the course. Pieces with piano should be well prepared, as there is very little time for rehearsals with the pianist.

Finally, free seminars, lectures , Qi Gong as well as rhythm, breathing and voice training will be offered.
