Friends and partners who believe in our mission and share our vision support the school and let our young soloists flourish. You as a sponsor can choose from the following options:
1. Individual scholarships: CHF 5.000-10.000
Amongst our students are the talented children with various backgrounds (from lower-income families, raised by a single parent, from families with many children) The cost of the Advanced Studies program is around 5000 CHF per semester.
This does not include expenses for the instruments, music scores, participation in the masterclasses, competitions, travel and accommodation expenses. These fees are not compatible with the financial possibilities of most of the parents and make such projects nearly impossible. These talented children need your help!
2. Violin Masterclasses in Zürich during the school year: CHF 2.000-10.000
The masterclass is arranged in cooperation with the Musical Pre-College of the Zurich University of the Arts. It is held by leading music professors and soloists from all over the world for the children, who study music on the professional level (Advanced Studies program at the ZBSM and the Pre-College program at the Zurich University of the Arts) with the purpose of widening the horizons of our students, introducing them to different performance practices and enhancing their knowledge of various musical styles.
3. Summer Violin Masterclass at the Maxim Vengerov Music Festival in Monte Carlo: CHF 10.000-15.000
During the summer holidays we organize a one week long Masterclass within the frame of the new and exciting music festival, organized by Maxim Vengerov. Maxim is one of the leading musicians and educators in the world today. His festival in Monte Carlo will feature the most interesting soloists, orchestras and conductors from all over the world. The masterclass will give our students not only the opportunity to study with the great masters, but also a chance to attend their concerts, rehearsals and even possibly share the stage with the most famous musicians of our times.
4. Concert of young soloists with a string quartet/chamber orchestra: CHF 6.000-8.000
Performing on stage is one of the most important parts of our education process, therefore the School organizes concerts where our students can appear as soloists with orchestra. In order to perform with the high level orchestras free of charge, our young musicians often travel to Russia, Belorussia and even Uzbekistan. We would like to be able to offer this opportunity for them in Switzerland as well. Such chamber orchestras as Soloists of Neuchatel and Collegium Kantorum to name a few, are ready to participate in the project “Young soloists of ZBSM with orchestra”, but require funding.
5. Acquiring musical instruments for the School or lending a fine instrument to a talented student (grand piano, upright piano, violins, violoncellos): from CHF 2.000
For our new premises we need a baby grand piano for holding School’s recitals and rehearsals with the pianist, and an upright piano as a second instrument for daily studying. It is often a challenge for the students of the Advanced Study Program to find a good instrument to rent or buy. The School is collaborating with the Foundation Maggini, where it is possible to rent a string instrument for the price starting from 200 CHF per month. We would like to create our own pools of good instruments, which we would lend to our best students free of charge.
6. Development of the School CHF 5.000-20.000
The development of the School is linked to the recruitment of new students: beginners as well as accomplished students, applying for the Intensive and the Advanced Studies programs. To achieve that, we have to constantly improve our marketing and the promotion of the School. In order to attract new children and teenagers to the Advanced Studies program we organize new masterclasses and search for performance opportunities. Administration of the School is constantly involved in fundraising, which allows to give scholarships to the most talented students and to the students from the families in need.
