a message from the Directors, 

Welcome to Erben Masterclass Munich (EMCM).  It is our pleasure to invite you to our inaugural 'Masterclass Series'. The inspiration behind the 'EMCM' birthed from our dreams to connect musicians and artisans with one another. 

In our first year, we have the honor of working with the acclaimed Israeli violinist, Vadim Gluzman. 

Here at the 'EMCM', we offer a bespoke environment that focuses on tailoring to meet the individuals needs so they can achieve their artistic potential.

We are delighted to announce that our organization will loan the use of a 'Peter Erben' violin for a period of 2 years, and one of our participants will also be sponsored by the 'Arkady Fomin' scholarship fund.

Furthermore, French bow maker 'Christophe Collinet' will make a bow especially for the EMCM. This bow will be loaned for 2 years.

We wish every participant a wonderful time here in Munich, and hope our organization will help you make a big leap towards your goals.
