The postgraduate specialist violin course in the Accademia di Musica, Pinerolo is taught by Irvine Arditti.
The two-year study pathway includes individual specialist courses in instrument (taught by high profile international teachers), residential group lessons (week-long modules) and a personalised development pathway under the supervision of music specialists. Lectures, seminars, workshops, plus opportunities to perform in public, in concerts organised by important music associations and in special events, complete a study programme that covers all aspects of the professions open to musicians today.
The activities take place between the Pinerolo Academy of Music and Palazzo Cisterna in Turin.
Students who complete the Specialist courses will be awarded a qualification recognised by the MIUR (Ministry for Education,Universities and Research) as equivalent to that awarded by other schools offering Specialist degrees, Scuola di Specializzazione in Beni Musicali Strumentali. To be eligible to apply for the course candidates must possess a second level degree in music from a university-level school of music (Conservatoires and ex IMPs), or from an institute of higher education authorised to award certificates of Advanced Studies in Art, Music and Dance (as per Italian law ex art. 11 DPR 8 July 2005, no.212), or certification or a qualification from another country which is legally recognised as equivalent.
The 3rd level postgraduate degree conferred by the Accademia di Musica on completion of our Postgraduate Specialist Course in Musical Performance is officially recognised by the MIUR (Italian Ministry of Education and Research) as having a value of 3 points in any public competition for a teaching position in a higher education institute of music and dance performance.
