HERE ARE SOME INFORMATIONS FROM THE LAST COURSE: 
From August 29 - to september 4th, 2004 a  "International Summer Academy  for Marimba & Percussion"  with Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic took place in Castle ENGERS, GERMANY. 
The course was attended by nearly 40 international participants from 13 countries!  Although course was in Germany, only 3-4 students were from Germany itself::))   Participants from USA, Canada, Mexico, Italy, Holland, Sweden, UK, Switzerland,. Slovenia, Italy, Australia, Japan, Taiwan,  etc..  came together and worked with Nebojsa Zivkovic  up to 10 hours every day.  Each active participant had to prepare at least two works for marimba or for multipercussion solo.  However, after  the course and practicing  were over, the most famous German beverage  was also  "allowed", than GOOD spirit of the whole group and friendly atmoshpere was also one of the intended (and sucessfuly achived!)  course goals. After 5 days of master classes and chamber music practicing on marimba and percussion, the selected participants presented  two  public concerts in different German cities, ending in Frankfurt.  The course was sponsored by YAMAHA Europa, who sent some 10 marimbas, vibes, xylophons and full load of concert percussion instruments. After such enormous sucess (the limitation of Active participants had to be changed because of too many application)   ZIVKOVIC's ISAMP (International Summer Academy for Marimba and Percussion)  are helt onlyevery TWO YEARS. 
The next Summer Academy, is scheduled for  August 2006.  See www.zivkovic.de/marimbacourse.htm 

We have learned a lot, we had BIG fun and we performed 2 public concerts. See the Gallery, click on the Pic for a BIG photo.
