During their time, the courses gained their place in the summer cultural program of the monastery, and the organizers' efforts to further extend their courses of international participation. This has been successful since the second year of teaching (Kerry Turner, member of the American Horn Quartet, and Saar Berger, member of Ensemble Modern), and from the last year also by student participation (in 2017 the courses welcomed participants from Japan, Hungary, Slovenia, Czech Republic).

The courses are intended for pupils of the elementary school, conservatory students and academics, as well as for the public, without age limitation.

During the courses, the organizer offers participants a full service from transport, accommodation (in the renovated Broumov Monastery in the monastic cells), catering services and leisure time spent in a group with instructors - a trip to Adrspach Rocks or a similar type of trip. After the reconstruction of the monastery there are concert halls with different capacity from thirty listeners up and  the multifunctional hall Dřevník, which is located in the monastery garden and is for 300 listeners. Individual lessons and chamber lessons are held in the monastery and concert hall in parallel.

The concerts will take place in the monastery, in Dřevník, in churches in Broumov and open air. In recent years, open air concerts in the Adrspach Rocks have been a great success. The final top concert of the courses is the concert of lecturers of courses within the festival Za Poklady Broumovska.
