"The competition stimulated me to learn to play at the top of my capabilities: I had a clear goal to study for. I was extremely motivated! It was interesting to receive the comments from the professional jury and to have the opportunity to perform in front of an audience."
The jury reports and the personal contact with the jury members is inspiring and an excellent learning experience. The comments are useful for both paricipants as teachers. For many of our laureates, attending the competition is a step forward in their professional career! There is opportunity for participants to attend workshops and to get inspired by concerts of reknowned flute players. All contestants will receive a certificate afterwards.
