Your Personal Masterclass
Musical Inspiration, Anywhere, Anytime
A welcome note from founder
“During the Civid-19 pandemic the I’ve reached out to my artist friends all over the world.
What followed were many deeply inspiring conversations.
We all felt the urge to stay connected, while travel is restricted and performances are put on hold.
This is when the idea of VirtuMasterClass was born. We want to make sure the inspirational flow between international performing artists and students around the globe stays alive.
We wanted to build bridges, where boarders are closed and facilitate access to our resources.
The creative process, between the artists, me and our tech team in Bangkok is an ongoing inspiring collective effort.
We know that online teaching will evolve and develop.
We share the same ideals of artistic excellence, commitment and passion for the most beautiful art form humanity ever invented : Music. Sharing our passion and experience with an audience on stage or in the intimate setting of a lesson with a student are two inseparable elements of our vocation.
We welcome you to our site and are here to help you on your own way to the main stage! “
