This summer the Piccola Accademia will offer a program of 2 courses free of tuition fees to eligible students. However a non-refundable registration fee is required for each course. The registration fee includes meals during the course.

To qualify, students must be presently enrolled in a university level music study or be recently graduated.

The classes will be filled in the order of the accepted applications, so early registration is recommended.

The master class week in Montisi begins on Monday evening with a ‘welcoming dinner’ in the Castello garden (19:00) for orientation and to allow participants to meet the professor, the Piccola Accademia staff and each other. The rhythm of each week will be set by the individual master class teachers, but generally classes take place in the morning 10:00 to 13:00, and in the afternoon 16:00-19:00, the evenings are available for practice and socialising. The master class week ends Sunday evening with a public student concert (18:00), and finishes with a farewell dinner at the Castello.

The courses are usually limited to 10 students. However, the final number is at the discretion of each professor. To ensure your place in the class early registration is recommended.
