Dear violin and viola teachers!

It is with great pleasure that we cordially invite you to attend the IMTEX Summer Academy online.
Excellent lecturers from traditional, Rolland and Suzuki backgrounds have agreed to share their knowledge and experience with us.

It is close to our hearts to use the proceeds from this Summer Academy to help the Ukrainian Suzuki Association and
Ukrainian families and instrumental who are in great need.

A big thanks goes to the American company SHAR Music,
which distributes Kerstin Wartberg’s sheet music in the USA. SHAR Music has donated 20 violins with complete accessories to the Ukrainian Suzuki Association.


All Ukrainian teachers can attend the Summer Academy free of charge.

Усі українські вчителі можуть взяти участь у Літній академії безкоштовно.
