The classes in bassoon offers children and adolescents an educational path made to favour listening, coordination and imitation, by way of shared lessons in small homogenous groups and divided by age (3/4 children) offered by DEMIA (Department of Musical Education for children and adolescents) as well as through individual lessons following a more traditional approach to the instrument.
From the very beginning the educational path connotes musical experience as a shared activity, thanks to choral studies and participation in the orchestral ensembles and in the School’s chamber ensembles (wind ensembles and other small groups).
The progressive incrementing of skills permits the gradual acquisition of familiarity with the instrument, starting from the quality of the emission of sound to arrive at intonation and progressively conquest the capacity to play ever more complex compositions.
The educational path pursues the goal of allowing the completion of foundational formative modules from the basic, medium and advanced levels, with certification of passed exams and attendance of complementary courses included in the study plan.
It is furthermore possible to receive instrumental lessons in a open course, of which there are no planned exams.
The School considers students’ participation in concerts, recitals and planned initiatives to be an integral part of the educational course.
To allow a more natural approach to the instrument, attendance in the propaedeutic courses in music is advised for children aged 0-5 years with the Gordon Method and in choral-rhythmic activities targeted towards children between 3 and 9 years old.
