Rhodius Academy

Welcome to our stage

"Rhodius Academy for Double Bass/ Schloss Burg Namedy".

Supporting highly networking talented doublebassists from all over the world is the main goal of the two-year cycle double bass academy.

Socialising and networking are central concerns of the five-day masterclass.

We want to empower the standing of the Double

Bass in the international concert business. Under the artistic guidance of Christine Hoock four international double bass soloist and

two experienced répétiteurs are invited as docents.


In 2019 Catalin Rotary (USA/Romania), Rick Stotijn (Netherlands/Germany), Thierry Barbé (France) and Christine Hoock (Germany/Austria)

are coaching as doubleBass masters. Piano: Tomoko Takahashi and Mari Kato.


From July 23th-28th 2019

around twenty students will have the opportunity of intense single lessons with each of the four double

bass teachers. The process includes specific open classes, public and internal concerts of professors and students.

Thewhole event is public. The Academy offers participation scholarships.

Christine Hoock: " The Academy was born in 2017 with an extra portion of love for the Double Bass. It was a bit like christmas

for me when the sponsor explained that they want to support exclusively the Double Bass.


So-every 2 years we will have an exclusive 5-day masterclass for 20 selected participants with 4 international double bass soloists and 2 pianists. Besides the intense musical work we will have a lot of opportunities for dialog and connection. Location is the harmonic and history-changed castle Namedy on river Rhein with a real princess living there..."
