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
Students have the right to two lessons per month, with their teacher and the collaborative pianist Valentina Messa, from October to May (or June depending on the calendar needs) for a total number of 16 lessons. 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 15 September 2020.
However, in compliance with new government regulations to combat the spread of Covid-19, major changes have been made in the procedures for enrolment for the 2020/21 academic year. For the safety of students and to avoid group gatherings, the entrance exams will not be held at the Accademia. Candidates will be required to send a video of themselves performing the exam programme.
Deadline for sending video material: 15 September. Given the unprecedented nature of the crisis and the difficulties in travelling, for string instruments the performance video programme will consist of pieces for solo strings (solo violin, solo viola, solo cello), 15 minutes in duration. Candidates should include pieces of at least two different styles/periods.A commission formed by the Accademia Director and Teachers will review the videos received and will then decide which candidates will be admitted to the school for the 2020/21 academic year. The results of the entrance exams will be comunicated to candidates from 30 September.
On the enrolment form students must give the names of at least two teachers in order of preference.
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.
