" I designed the Academy 

I dreamed of as a student.”

The Villars Music Academy invites talented young musicians to a one- week intensive musical and personal experience. Next to masterclasses given by leading soloists and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Villars Music Academy also features classes designed through a holistic approach to promote personal development as well as shared values for tomorrow’s world. The stunning surroundings of Villars-sur-Ollon, a beautiful village in the Swiss Alps, provides a perfect place for inspiration.
