Welcome to International Flute Seminar Bruges

IFSB welcomes professional flute players, students, advanced amateur flute players and young flutists in Sint-Lodewijkscollege in Bruges. We offer a six day seminar with masterclasses, workshops, warming up, individual lessons, piccolo, Alexander technique, audition training, flute choir, teachers’ conference and a junior day in an inspiring atmosphere.

Known as the Venice of the North, Bruges is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe! It was a justified motive that prompted UNESCO in 2000 to include the entire historical city centre on the World Heritage list. Walking along the maze of winding cobbled alleys and romantic canals, you imagine yourself to be in medieval times. The wealth of museums is a striking image of this city’s stirring history. Bruges is also home to contemporary culture, such as the new Concert Hall, which is one of the most prominent music complexes in Flanders.
