The course is intended to help students extend their knowledge of the repertoire of their instrument, thus giving them a solid basis on which to build a professional career, as teachers or performers.
The annual study pathway includes the study of repertoire for:
- solo performance
- chamber music
- orchestra performance, including orchestra excerpts
Students will have two lessons per month. Collaborative pianist, Alessandro Mosca, will also be present at the lessons, when deemed necessary by the teacher. The teacher and the student will together decide on the repertoire for the course, the student’s participation in competitions and concerts, and the scheduling of their Accademia exams.
To apply for admission candidates must be no older than 30, in possession of a Conservatorio Diploma (old system), a Level 1 or Level 2 degree or equivalent qualification from a country other than Italy. The commission reserves the right to accept any student who shows exceptional talent, even though they do not meet the above-mentioned requirements.
Applications for the Academic Year 2020/2021 must reach our offices by 31 May 2020.
Entrance exams for the Academic Year 2020/2021 will be held in June 2020 (soon exact dates will be published).
Candidates who apply for admission are responsible for keeping themselves informed about the time of the auditions, which will be held at the Accademia in Pinerolo.
Entrance exam programme
Free programme of around 20 minutes for solo cello, cello and piano, cello and orchestra, chosen from concert repertoire.
After the student has passed the entrance exam, the Directors of Studies will decide on the most effective study pathway for the individual student, including the specific organisation of the lessons in the Accademia, which may be taught by one or more than one teacher.
At the end of the course (minimum 2 years) each student will take an exam to assess whether they can be awarded a Diploma or Master’s Diploma. Students who achieve a Master’s Diploma are then eligible to apply for a scholarship for the following academic year.
