Open Masterclass

The main focus of Raffles International Music Festival is music competitions in a professional and friendly environment. Thus providing a positive platform for young musicians to challenge themselves, reach out to higher levels in their art and enrich themselves through cultural exchange with international friends.

Open Masterclasses are a platform for the students, parents and teachers to come up close and personal to International Master teachers – to hear their experiences, learn skills and exchange ideas.
