About Us

The Masterclass Media Foundation films and records world-class classical musicians giving masterclasses and teaching students. The mission is to give both music students and music lovers the chance to benefit from the inspired teaching of great musicians and to create an important archive for future generations.

Subscribe to our YouTube channel for brand new clips every Wednesday, and stay up to date with us on social media. All our masterclasses are available to purchase on our download store, or to stream with our partners, and you can still purchase DVDs for our older recordings.

“Having attended several of these masterclasses, I have been amazed by the accuracy and truthfulness of the resulting DVDs. These are undoubtedly the best films of performance teaching that I have ever seen.”

Sir Curtis Price, Former Principal, The Royal Academy of Music, London
