Study pathway

A Light Course is a short course scheduled during the academic year and it consists of 8 lessons of 1 hour divided into 4 teaching sessions distributed over the year (December/ June). Dates of lessons for the Academic Year 2023/2024 will be published in November 2023.


The annual study plan includes in-depth study of the solo repertoire for the oboe and the preparation of the repertoire of solos with orchestra. The plan will also include study of new playing techniques for performing contemporary repertoire, as well as anything specifically requested by the students with a view to preparing competitions and auditions.


At the end of the Academic Year, a final concert is foreseen.

The course is dedicated to oboists, both graduates and not. Age limit: to apply for admission candidates must be no older than 30.
