Werk Academy

CLASSICAL MUSIC MANAGEMENT TRAINING

Today's Hungarian art market is ever increasing in value for professionals who orientate themselves in a particular artistic field, are familiar with the ins and outs of the art and have an overview of the players. Werk Academy is a new start-up in Hungary that provides unique training by means of theoretical knowledge, background information and social capital. This course gives insight into the operation and functioning of classical music for which we will call on the best national professionals to demonstrate in their own fields of expertise. Thus, participants will also look into the workings of the classical music market and will possess the compatible skills upon completion of the training in order to start working in the industry.  It culminates with a professional exam where participants hold a concert under one roof.
