Curtis Institute of Music online courses and MOOCs - student reviews
The Curtis Institute of Music holds the distinction of being the most selective institution of higher learning in the United States, if not the world. Less than 4 percent of applicants are accepted to join the student body of about 160 talented musicians in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. Students are accepted on the basis of a live audition, and all receive full-tuition scholarships. Those few who make the cut work one on one with top-notch musical artists in programs tailored specifically for them. The Curtis Institute, renowned music school for training the world’s finest musicians for careers as performing artists, has until recently cherished its exclusivity. But now it is reaching out with online courses designed to enhance the appreciation of classical music around the world. Anyone can participate; being a musical prodigy is not required. More than 30,000 learners signed up for the Curtis Institute’s first online course. A global community formed as participants engaged in online discussions about their discoveries in classical music and interacted with faculty. You can join them by enrolling in online music lessons through the Curtis Institute, a top college of music, exploring Beethoven’s piano sonatas and discovering the stories and techniques behind classical selections throughout music history.
