Courses for foreign students


As the flagship of the Academy, the enhancement courses are designed and structured for students from abroad who wish to deepen their knowledge of Italian musical culture and/or wish to enter higher artistic and musical education. Students enrolled in these courses will have the opportunity to perfect their desired instrument with highly qualified teachers in order to improve their technical and artistic skills. In addition, to guarantee the quality of the project, the Academy operates in agreement and in collaboration with several Italian music institutions, including the “G. Rossini” Conservatory in Pesaro and the “G. Tartini” Conservatory in Trieste


Courses vary in duration from a few months up to 10 months.
