The classes in harpsichord offers children and adolescents an educational pathway made to favour listening, coordination and imitation, and the knowledge of how the instrument works through individual lessons.
From the very beginning the educational path connotes musical experience as a shared activity, thanks to choral studies and participation in small period music ensembles.
The progressive incrementing of skills permits the student to further develop various aspects of the instrumental technique: relaxed approach to the keyboard, agility and coordination of the hands, progressive graduation of the control of sound space and of the various parts of the instrument, with particular attention given to the quality of sound.
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 singing 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.
