FAQs

How did it start?

We started Young Classicals by making video for talented classical musicians around the world and posting the results on social media. 

What does Young in Young Classicals mean?

Young in Young Classicals refers to the new generation of musicians that uses apps, social media and technology to help further their career.

What is the main goal of your courses?

The main goal of our courses is to support you as a (professional) classical musician in your career. By offering valuable knowledge and skills in addition to your music studies, we hope to make your live as a freelancing artist a little bit easier. We do not offer music lessons, that is what the conservatory is for.

Why offer courses?

In this digital age there are a lot of apps, tools and services available that can be of great help to classical musicians. We noticed that many of you don't know about them, and that's why we decided to create our courses.

How are these courses set up?

Let's say you want to record a simple, but high quality video like this using just one camera angle. So you search the internet for help and you quickly find tens of thousands of tutorials on Youtube. When searching a  professional course website like Lynda.com you'll find thousands of in-depth courses as well.

But you don't have time to dive in that deep! And we're guessing you don't want to become the next Spielberg either... You just want to learn enough skills to make a high quality performance video with good audio. And that's where we come in. We focus on the essentials you need to know to get great results quickly and easily.

Should I get the All Access pass?

Well, yes! You'll get every course and series that we'll release throughout 2020-2021 with All Access. So the value of your one time (small) investment keeps increasing over time. Another reason is that a lot of courses and series are connected to each other and with All Access you'll have access to everything.

How can All Access be so cheap?

Because we are a small company with relatively low costs. That way we can offer high quality content for a low price. There are a lot of expensive courses out there ($100-$1.500), as well as subscription-based courses that you have to pay for every single month. So we thought we'd offer you a bundle for a small price instead 😎

How much content do you have?

We'll release a total of 14 courses/series throughout 2020-2021, and they are all included with All Access for only €50 (ex vat). Most individual courses/series are €25 (ex vat) each, and some are free.

Any recurring fees?

Nope. You only pay once for a product. No monthly or annual fees. Yay! 💃🏻

Can I get a refund?

We don't offer refunds.

Any info on the release dates?

In the list of courses you can see which ones are scheduled for 2020, and which ones are scheduled for 2021.

I'm stuck! Can you help me?

Keeping the prices as low as possible means that we do not have a support team. That said, most apps and services that we talk about in our courses do have their own, dedicated support teams.

What if I bring you new customers?

You can become an affiliate if you have a large and engaging audience consisting of classical musicians. For every sale that goes through your affiliate link, you will earn a €8 commission! Contact us here if you think you can help us grow Young Classicals.

What if I get my school to purchase All Access for all students?

If you bring us in contact with staff from your school and a bulk order (50+ accounts) is placed as a result, you will get a Audio-Technica AT2020 USBi microphone for free. Make sure you already talk to your school before you contact us, and send us an email here connecting us with your contact.

How does COVID-19 influence Young Classicals?

We originally scheduled to launch the first few courses on October 1st, 2020. But with the virus keeping many of you at home, we worked very hard to launch a couple of courses much sooner. This includes our course about Podia where we will teach you how to create a website just like ours to earn money online with your music. With our course about Canva you'll learn how to quickly create amazing designs for concert posters, programs, Insta stories, etc. You will also get 100+ design templates!

As for our own original music videos: recordings of new music videos are put on hold for the foreseeable future. We do however still have several videos to publish.
