The String Department includes the violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar and harp. The Department’s teachers have well-established long-standing careers and have been highly acclaimed for their artistic achievements.
Most members of the department have trained students who now occupy posts in first-rate orchestras, opera companies or have embarked on careers as soloists or accomplished chamber musicians.
Many students have since become excellent teachers themselves at various institutions.
In accordance with legislative reform, which coordinates educational activities, research, artistic production and the planning of the training courses, projects proposed by members of the String Department aim at achieving the utmost in art, culture and education.
