Our Programmes – IN BRIEF

But-MasterOur one- or two-year Master Programmes focus on HIPP (Historically Informed Performance Practice) of sacred and secular repertoire from 15-17th centuries by thoroughly studying historical sources, performance practice treatises, improvising and ornamenting techniques for polyphonic and concertato-style pieces.
The Master programme requires a study plan (one or two-year) consisting of 60 credits per year including Core Courses (Theory and Practice) besides Complementary/Elective Courses and a final exam (Recital plus Master thesis).

But-LiberiWe offer a large variety of Taught-Programmes (Corsi Curriculari/PRO): preparation courses, undergraduate/postgraduate courses as well as specific training for professionals. Our aim is a historically informed performance of sacred and secular repertoire from 15-17th centuries by developing vocal/instrumental techniques and experiencing principles of improvisation/ornamentation.
Such courses and training include a series of further activities (Workshops, Lectures, Master Classes) besides the major subject (small group/individual lessons). Students must take exams or tests in order to be awarded a Palma Choralis® Certificate and progress to the Diploma.
