We recorded over 100 Masterclasses at Villa Sandra, Lake Maggiore, Italy.


We recorded Masterclasses in Jerusalem and Raanana Israel and launched the first website edition of iClassical Academy.


We recorded Miriam Fried's Musical Jewel Bach Solo Sonatas and Partitas and created firm partnerships with Medici TV and Naxos.


We changed the functionality and structure of the website, a so called 2nd start-up!


We initiated Musimentor and lots of recourses to help musicians in their careers and were in China to record at the Schoenfeld International String Competition.


Teachers were invited to join the Academy with their courses and collections and the first courses were launched.


We recorded Cello, Bow and You with Evangeline Benedetti in Italy and Masterclasses with Jing ZHAO in Chinese language, shortly before the outbreak of Covid.


We created Master Memberships that give access to the full catalog content and started educational partnerships with music competitions.


We continued adding great content to the catalog, such as the Kreutzer Etudes, Popper, and James Wilt Trumpet Collection.


We added New Piano Courses, Webinars about Music Promotion and Mindset, and masterclasses, and we launched license agreements with schools and institutions.


We launched an agreement with our partner Cicerone Music Club, where our courses are featured for rent and buy. More to come!
