People are not born winners.
They become winners.
Only a few musicians out of hundreds of thousands manage to realize their talent and perform at the greatest music venues. These are extremely talented people with a contagious and unique charisma, who have gone through a lot of doubts, but understood something very important and managed to turn their failures into victories. They generously share their insights and vision with you at our meetings.

Stop digging up information bit by bit. Get it from those who know exactly and have proved it by personal example how to realize their talent.

These are extremely talented people with a contagious and unique charisma, who have gone through a lot of doubts, but understood something very important and managed to turn their failures into victories. Get information from those who have shown by personal example how to realize their talent.
This is the information that you can't find in public interviews or in music conservatories.

Only at the closed meetings
you will get the most useful tips, based on the experience of the people who have made mistakes, but reached outstanding results in the art and in the career.

Save your time and money - don't fall into the same trap as many of your colleagues who couldn't reach what they deserved.
You don't need to go anywhere!

These meetings are ONLINE
It was hard to imagine a couple of years ago - you had to go somewhere and the time was limited. But now you can meet a great artist from any place of the world
Maybe you will be traveling or just won't be home. No problem! All you need is an internet connection - and you come to the online meeting right from your mobile, tablet or computer. And even if you are late at the beginning or need to leave earlier, you can get the recording of the meeting and enjoy it again!

It works in any country and on any device.
What is the difference from YouTube and free interviews?
These are completely different things
GREAT COMMUNITY
You get into a community of people who share your interests and look for great results in art and in life. Our environment determines our mindset and actions. We give you the environment that motivates you to move on toward your dream
01
PRIVATE INFORMATION
People don't tell things in public interviews that are not supposed to be open for a wide audience. They only tell certain things in a friendly community of people with same interests and values. These are things that you will never hear in any other place - and very often these are the most useful tips and tricks. That's what we discuss behind closed doors
02
ACTIVE COMMUNICATION
You are not just a passive listener, you have a chance to be an active participant and become a director of your own life. When you ask your questions and think how you can apply the tips for yourself, you acquire 9 times more information. Take control over your life and achievements
03
STUDY OF YOUR QUESTIONS
Unlike video recordings that have been made in advance, at our meetings you meet live and can PERSONALLY ask questions to outstanding musicians - either about repertoire, finding sponsorship, preparation for concerts or competitions, or efficient practicing
04
ACCESS TO ALL MATERIALS
Even if you miss a meeting you still get its recording. You can even ask your question by email - and we'll discuss it during the meeting. You have access to all previous recordings of the meetings and can watch most useful tips again

FAQs
How is it held?

After signing up you will receive an e-mail from us with data for your access to the educational platform and all the technical details. We will send you the schedule of all the upcoming meetings. Before each meeting we will remind you about it again so that you do not miss it.

We meet using the Zoom application. It is free and available for all platforms - iOS, Android, PC or Mac. This is like Skype, but for a bigger audience. It is free and easy to use.

One hour before the webinar we will send you a link. You just click on it and get into the webinar room where we meet. You see the speaker and the hosts, take part in the meeting and can ask your questions.

In which language is it held?

The meetings are held in English, as we invite speakers from different countries. Our task is to show unique approaches of prominent people from different cultures, that you cannot reach if you live in one country. Our webinars are designed for people for whom English is a foreign language. We specifically bespeak this with all the artists, so that the language is simple and understandable. Therefore, to benefit from the meetings, it is enough to have at least an elementary level of English.

How long does each meeting last?

Usually, our webinars last from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the number of additional questions.

How often do webinars take place?

Once a month.

Do I need to register for each next meeting again?

If you applied for only one meeting you need to register each time again.

If you subscribe for 3 or 6 months there is no need to apply for each meeting again. You will automatically receive all of the reminders and links to the meeting room. And if for some reason you still miss the meeting, you will receive the recording of it.

What are my benefits if I subscribe for 3 or 6 months, comparing to a one-time purchase of the webinar?

1. You get a discounted price for online meetings - 20% if you subscribe for 3 months, and 30% if you subscribe for a half-year.

2. You get a 5% discount to all of the products of the Classica Viva Music Academy if you subscribe for 3 months, and 10% if you subscribe for 6 months. Therefore if you take part in the Summer Academy in Italy or other training programs of the Academy, your subscription for our online meetings is compensated.

3. You get access to all of the recordings of the previous meetings, brochures, job and scholarship announcements for musicians.

4. You get access to a private chat and additional webinars for the members of our community free of charge. You get information how to get a financial support, opportunities to study, tips on getting scholarships, advices on how to increase your fee for concerts, where to get these concerts, and more.

5. Being a part of the community gives you access to a great resource. Our members share their experience and help each other to find solutions that would take you hundreds of hours of research if you would do it by yourself.

How can I unsubscribe?

You can unsubscribe anytime by writing us an email. We don't have any hidden payments or conditions written "with small letters".

How do I pay my subscription?

If you join us for 3 months, your subscription payment is made automatically every 3 months. If you subscribe for 6 months, you are charged once every half-year.

The minimal subscription period is 3 months. You can unsubscribe anytime for the next quarter or half-year before your payment for the next period is made. The subscription fee for the previously paid 3- or 6-months access cannot be returned.

What if I can't attend?

It's okay as all of our meetings are recorded. If any thoughts were of particular interest to you, you can always watch the recording of the meeting again. This option is only available if you subscribe for 3 or 6 months, and your access to the recordings of all meetings is maintained while you remain a part of our community.

How can I ask an artist a question?

You can ask questions right during the webinar. We meet like in a real room, where everybody can see or hear each other. Alternatively you can also write in the chat. Taking into account that our community is growing very fast, we have introduced a possibility to send your questions in advance by e-mail in order to make sure we have enough time at the meeting to answer to your question.

And if I don't have a computer at my disposal at the time of the webinar?

This is not a problem. Our webinars are held using the most advanced platform. You can access them from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Many people even do it on the go. Webinars work in all modern browsers: Chrome, Safari, Mozilla, Opera and so on.

What should I do if I can't get to the webinar or if something doesn't work?

If you were able to access this page, then you know how to use a browser. And you don't need anything else to attend our webinars! If suddenly you have got any problems, our technical support specialists will solve them together with you.
