The Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana is part
of a consortium of schools in Europe belonging
to the Erasmus program. In part, students
attending Erasmus member schools
can spend a semester studying at a partner
school for no additional tuition. One of the
most unique features of Erasmus is that teachers
may also go on one-week exchanges. Students in
exchange schools benefit from a visit by David
Johnson and students at CSI receive lessons with
a series of guest artists.
David has traveled to Leipzig, Helsinki, Oslo, Prague, Brno, Cluj, Budapest, Porto, and London for an exchange. In return the horn students of CSI have had the experience of studying with Thomas Hauschild, Erja Joukamu-Ampuja, Jindrich Petras, Froydis Ree Wekre, Frank Lloyd, Zdenek Divoky, and Roger Montgomery.
