Master Courses

??? Paragrafo[2]/Immagine/Link ???
In 1939 the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia was officially recognized in its role in advanced music training with the establishment of the Master Courses in Music Studies.
The history of the Courses is one of highly prestigious teachers and of countless excellent students, many of whom have embarked on brilliant careers in music.
Today the Master Courses in Music Studies are acknowledged by the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research. The three-year courses are geared towards young musicians holding academic diplomas and possessing outstanding performance skills, offering them the opportunity to gain excellent professional experience.
Master Courses in the 2017-18 academic year: 
Composition: Ivan Fedele
Chamber Music: Carlo Fabiano

Requirements for admission
The courses are open to students of any nationality who meet the following requirements:
a) possession of a traditional conservatory diploma (Italian old system) or of a first or second level degree achieved in the discipline for which they are applying. If the degree was obtained abroad, it will be considered valid if it has been declared equivalent to a Conservatory diploma; it is the responsibility of any student admitted to a course to obtain the equivalence of the foreign qualification, pursuant to applicable Italian laws.

b) age not exceeding 30 years; for the Composition Course, in view of the particular study path, the limit is extended to 35 years.

Exceptions to these requirements may be permitted only in exceptional cases, in the case of special, recognized artistic qualities and subject to the evaluation and approval of both the teacher and the President of the Accademia.
