The advanced course in piano is held by Enrico Stellini, and has a minimum duration of three years.
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.
The annual study pathway will include:
- a programme of recitals, from Bach to contemporary composers;
- one concerto for piano and orchestra, from Mozart to the 20th century;
- supplementary studies based on the needs of the individual student.
The student is entitled to two lessons per month, for eight months, from October/November to May/June.
At the end of the course 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.
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.
