The courses will be taught at the "Eduardo Martínez Torner" Advanced Conservatory of Music of the Principality of Asturias and at the Príncipe Felipe Auditorium in Oviedo between 18th and 27th July. The courses enjoy the patronage of the Maria Cristina Masaveu Peterson Foundation.

Students may register via the school's website at http://www.escuelainternacionaldemusica.org/ or may obtain enrolment forms from the Prince of Asturias Foundation offices: C/ General Yagüe, 2 / 33004 Oviedo, and C/ Doctor Casal 12, 2º / 33001 Oviedo.

Twenty-six professors of nine different nationalities shall give classes covering the standard range of symphonic orchestral instruments, in addition to chamber music and ensemble classes for string quartet, wind ensemble, folk music ensemble, youth orchestra and junior orchestra. This year the school is to introduce, in collaboration with the Red Cross Youth Programme for Promoting Health and Health Education, the workshop "If you have no doubts... You make the choice!" on preventing and raising awareness regarding drug use and unhealthy habits. In addition, the Musical Health Department maintains its contribution, imparting the subject "Human body resources applied to music", aimed at developing naturalness, postural habits and the body-mind relationship in musicians.

 The artistic director of the Summer Courses, Yuri Nasushkin, is a professor at the "Eduardo Martínez Torner" Advanced Conservatory of Music of the Principality of Asturias and has conducted the Principality of Asturias Youth Symphony Orchestra (JOSPA) and the Community of Madrid Youth Orchestra.

The Prince of Asturias Foundation International Music School

The Prince of Asturias Foundation International Music School represents the consolidation of an ambitious project initiated in 1990 with the relocation to Asturias of the prestigious chamber orchestra "The Moscow Virtuosi" and of its six renowned professors (Gaiane Pogossova, Tsiala Kvernadze, Alexei Mijlin, Alexander Fedorchenko, Victor Afanassiev and Yuri Nasushkin) under the auspices of our institution. After years of collaboration and on the initiative of Yuri Nasushkin, the Foundation created its International Music School in 2005 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Prince of Asturias Awards

Classes are taught by a distinguished international teaching staff, while the School includes among its visiting professors some of the world's most celebrated musicians, some of whom have been Prince of Asturias Award laureates, which makes the School different to any other existing in Spain.

The Prince of Asturias Foundation International Music School is active throughout the entire year, organising seminars, conferences and master classes that count on the participation as visiting professors of some of the world's most outstanding musicians, including the Prince of Asturias Laureates Teresa Berganza and Krzysztof Penderecki, among others. Since 2005, classes have been given by teachers from: the Detmold Academy of Music (Germany); the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Moscow; the Geneva Conservatory of Music; the Robert Schuman School of Music and Media, Düsseldorf; the Russian Gnesin Academy of Music, Moscow; the Rubin Academy of Music and Dance, Jerusalem; the Mons Royal Conservatory (Belgium); the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London; the Advanced School of Music and Performing Arts, Oporto (ESMAE); the Yehudi Menuhin School (UK); the Juilliard School, New York; and the Royal College of Music, London.

The School is committed, in this way, to converting the Principality into a national and international leader in the teaching of music, bringing young talents to Asturias as well as the best music and instrumental specialists.
