2020/21 ACADEMIC YEAR (violin, viola, cello, piano) 
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 June. 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 June.

In each class we will reserve a certain number of places for students resident abroad who intend to apply for Accademia courses. This is to give them the time to wait for decisions to be made by the various governments on the reopening of national borders and thus to understand when it will be possible for them to travel to Italy to attend lessons. For these students the deadline for sending their application for admission and performance video will be 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.
