International summer music school Pučišća
International summer music school Pučišća is one of the longest summer traditions on Brač. July and August are filled with amazing music coming from the center of Pučišća!
Each summer in July and August in Pučišća on the Island of Brač, music courses are held for a range of instruments in classical, jazz and pop music. The duration of each course is ten days. Instruction are delivered by highly qualified musicians from leading music academies and conservatories from Croatia, Europe, USA and Russia.
There are no entry requirements for participants in the courses! Everyone is welcome to participate regardless of origin, age and musical ability or knowledge. The courses consist of a combination of individual and group instrumental teaching.
This school covers different musical genres (classical, jazz, pop/rock/fusion) in separate music workshops divided by instruments. Each instrumental course is held in a separate 10-day session, It consists of individual work with music professors and work in instrumental groups. During this time, many concerts are held: by attendants, professors and other musicians, in Pučišća and in other towns on the island of Brač. And at the end, a final attendants’ concert is held.
The number of applicants/students in each group is limited, in order to provide the maximum quality of learning. The purpose of this summer school is to provide potential students with the possibility to work on their musical knowledge without the pressure of routine obligations.
In the 20 years of running this school, about fifty seminars have been held each year, led by professors from Croatia, Europe, the United States and Russia. Up to now, 3000 attendees from all over the world have attended the school.
