Course fee and requirements for the application 

Application

 

The masterclass is directed to conductors who want to increase their musical experience and work as professionals in the world of classical music thanks to a wide repertoire and to the presence of a full professional orchestra.

The course is articulated in n°5 (five) days of lesson. The lessons with the orchestra will be recorded and at the end of the day the students will discuss with the teacher about their performance with the help of the recording.
The recording will be given to the students in digital format (micro SD memory cards) at the end of the course.

There will be an average podium time of 120 minutes per student and the best students will be recommended to important international concert institutions. The huge amount of podium time is intended to offer to the students a real opportunity to practice a wide repertoire, under the wise guidance of a very experienced teacher like M° Vittorio Parisi, whose students are already working in some of the most important institutions around the world.
