Otakar Ševčík became a legendary pedagogue on the basis of his life’s work, but also by teaching international students at summer music camps. The Ševčík Academy in Horažďovice is the fulfillment of a dream (and an answer to the question “how”) to do something similar in the 21st century: by teaching students musical instrument performance and expanding their knowledge of methodology while also giving them opportunities to perform in public and creating unforgettable experiences for all participants. Each age category has its corresponding program, while many activities take place jointly so even the youngest students can gain inspiration from their older colleagues. Join us and experience the magic of Ševčík Academy!
