Otakar Ševčík Seminar

The name of Otakar Ševčík is world-famous, but only a little fraction is known about his life and especially about his ingenious Ševčík method, which until today attracts students and teachers all over the world.

From the 5th to the 14th of August 2019 teachers and other Ševčík enthusiasts are invited to Horažďovice to attend the first international seminar on Otakar Ševčík ever. Every day there will be an opportunity for the visitors to attend public masterclasses. They will have an exclusive access to the private part; individual lectures or creative workshops with small children. The seminars will focus on the life and work of Otakar Ševčík and the theme of the instrument methodology generally.

Teachers, who will have brought their instruments with them, will be welcomed to participate in a collective performance of the Š experimental orchestra which will be taking place in the evening. The collective concert will be the climax of this part of the program.

For a little extra price teachers can enjoy full board and the accommodation.
