A Light Course is a short course scheduled during the academic year and it consists of 6 lessons of one and a half hours divided into 3 teaching sessions distributed over the year (October / June).
The course is dedicated to pianists (both graduates and not). The main objectives of the course are the improvement of the repertoire for concert engagements or competitions.
Dates of lessons for the Academic Year 2021/2022 will be published in October 2021.
M° Benedetto Lupo’s Light Course is not open to auditors.
Candidates admitted to the Light Course are considered internal students of the Accademia and are entitled to all the associated privileges (free admission to all concerts of the Concert Season, the opportunity to perform in the concerts organised by Accademia and to be recommended by the Accademia to other concert organisers, as well as free use of the concert hall to make recordings).
Age limit: to apply for admission candidates must be no older than 30.
The course is open to students enrolled in the Accademia as well as to external students.
Students attending annual academic courses may also enrol in the Light Course.
Applications must reach our offices by 27 September 2021.
Preselection: together with their application form, candidates must send a CV and an audio / video file, made no earlier than 2020.
The Artistic Director and M° Lupo will assess the materials submitted and will make a short-list of candidates, who, if necessary, will be invited for a live audition at the Accademia di Musica in Pinerolo.
Students who attended the light course in the academic year 2020/2021 and wish to re-enroll for the academic year 2021/2022 are exempted from sending the video; however, for the student who wishes, it is still possible to send a new video, if he believes that this new video may constitute a valid element for a more positive evaluation during the selection made by the Teacher and the Teaching Committee.
Entrance exams for 2021/2022 will be held in October 2021.
