Our special projects are designed to teach the children not only an instrument but also to bring them closer to the music they make and to develop a feeling for what the composer wanted to express with it. These projects convey different methodologies of teaching music where the students can share, improve their music skills and boost their creativity. Two examples in the past year have been the Music in a Nutshell series where students presented music and information about Mozart and Chopin.


Exams preparation and regular concert performances are seen as a highly important part of our students’ education. Priority is given in creating an artistic personality for each young musician. We provide concert series and workshops with teachers from different academies and Universities as well as professional musicians or ensembles from overseas. The 2013 Award from the Local Board for the Arts, Culture and Heritage to Flavio Villani is a good endorsement of the hard work. But our best recommendation is the joy of the people and the great feedback of who attend our events.
