Davidsbündler Music Academy

Anna Fedorova and Nicholas Santangelo Schwartz, Co-Founders and Directors

"The Davidsbündler Music Academy offers an intensive and innovative method of high level classical music education to dedicated young & talented pianists and string players. The Davidsbündler team is an exciting group of performers on todays international concert scene. We are setting out to initiate the birth of a new classical music hub in The Hague and in the Dutch cultural landscape at large.

The idea of the Davidsbündler society was created by Robert Schumann. In his writings, the fictional members of the Davidsbündler were people-representatives of free-spirited, progressive and open-minded society. These ideals are essential qualities of true artists and embody the modus operandi of our school.

Students of all ages are welcome at the academy, although the ages between 8 and 18 years are especially crucial for the in-depth musical education necessary for reaching the world's top stages. Our purpose is to prepare the most promising youth for what awaits them as concert artists, providing the highest quality of musical training, performing opportunities, side-by-side performance with professional musicians, regular masterclasses, presentations and Q+A sessions with eminent performers, artist managers, producers, and recording engineers.

In our academy, invite students from around the world to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The students will grow and progress in close touch with some of today’s greatest artists, as well as learn from each other and develop musical friendships that will carry them well into their future careers. We will foster their growth as individuals and musical personalities, so that they are not only great instrumentalists, but also true artists in their own right. We look forward to welcoming you to our new academy."
