  • You like music, but feel that you lack some understanding of the field?
  • You visit concerts and would like to better understand the musical content?
  • You enjoy listening to music and would like to be able to better follow the form of a piece, hear the harmonic structures and understand the composers intentions with ease?

Then this course is right for you!

The 2018 summer edition of the Academy takes place in the incredible Villa Rospigliosi, situated just next to the Vinci city, the birth place of Leonardo da Vinci.

Amazing landscapes with vine hills, spicy odours of summer Italian plants, small ancient towns and the famous Uffizi Gallery in Florence attract people from all over the world.

Villa Rospigliosi is located 2km from the hometown of Leonardo da Vinci and just 40km from Florence. It is a perfect place for a new musical experience, for opening your creative potential and enlarging your scopes.
