Enrolment at the Early Music Department Brescia is now open!

***Early Bird registration closing on 6th September 2019***

Our calendar is online with dates and provisional hours.
N.B. Non-Brescia based students are granted a personalised schedule (e.g. one date per month, or other) so to attend courses and activities more easily.

  • ONE-YEAR COURSES (e.g. Medieval-Renaissance-Baroque Singing, Da-Cappella-Camera Renaissance Ensemble etc.) usually display no more than two dates per month (usually on Fridays) in which all the activities take place. Students involved in EM projects (concerts, worships, full-immersion sessions etc.) sometimes have an additional date the following day (on Saturdays).
  • INDIVIDUAL TUITION AND OTHER COURSES  are organised in modules of four slots (usually on Saturdays) according to a schedule to be agreed upon with the teaching staff (email us for info).

FLASH INTRODUCTION

The EM background we created is built upon historical sources starting from all-encompassing disciplines such as solmisation, contrappunto à la mente/diminution/improvisation, canto figurato, canto fermo, etc. All this knowledge and related skills were part of a common background, and were shared amongst singers and players. Mastering a specific skill (as well as virtuoso performances) came out from this versatile mindset and common toolset, mainly grounded in singing. Thus, our goal is to re-found and re-think an “early” music training, not based on the 19-20th-cent heritage of the (modern) conservatoire, but looking at earlier music chapels and noble chambers according to a historical pedagogy.

 

EDUCATION 

Our varied range of Programmes includes several different paths and modules: Master Programmes, Professional Training for soloists and vocal/instrumental ensembles, Seminars on Italian Pronunciation for singers, Courses focussed on Italian 15/17th-century Music, Classes in Historical Counterpoint (Italian contrappunto à la mente), Ornamentation (Italian diminuzione), Improvisation, Vocal Coaching, Basso Continuo for strings, plucked instruments and keyboards, and much more at www.santaceciliabrescia.it/dipartimento-musica-antica/international-students/
