To apply for a place in the Piano Loop Festival, please fill in the application form (click here) and submit it on line. All applications must be received by July 15th 2017 (Application Deadline). Once you have received confirmation of your application a deposit is required to secure your place and this is a non-refundable deposit. This needs to be sent within 2 weeks of confirmation with the note ”free of charge of the recipient”, or we will assume you are not able to attend. In the unlikely event of the Piano Loop Festival being cancelled, your deposit will be refunded.


For written cancellations by the day of the application deadline, the participation fee will be refunded; the registration fee will, however, be retained. Please always indicate your bank account information in case of cancellation! A refund of the participation fee for withdrawals after the day of the application deadline is only possible in proven cases of force majeure (e.g. illness, accident). Such withdrawal must be effected before the festival begins. For later cancellations, the course fee will be retained.


All courses are open to both active participants and to auditors. Students who are not admitted by the teacher as active participants, due to a lack of adequate prior training, may attend the course as auditors. In such a case, the difference between the tuition fees for active and passive participation will be reimbursed. The number of active participants is limited (8). Active participants will only be accepted for the entire duration of the master class. Should the total of 8 valid applications not have been reached by December 15th 2018, the administration reserves the right to shorten the master class, although this measure will not reduce the lesson units per participant. The administration reserves the right, should an instructor be prevented from attending, to provide a comparable substitute at its own discretion or to cancel the course. Should a course be completely cancelled, all paid fees will be reimbursed to the participants. No other claims will be recognized.
