A typical workday
Breakfast at your accommodation while Director/Principal Coach Gil Jetley plans the day’s activities – typically organised into three two-hour sessions. Two hours of tuition followed by two hours of supervised practise (your tutor on hand to help with difficulties), break for an ‘al fresco’ lunch, then two more hours tuition. This way you consolidate new skills as you go and make fast progress.
Following the afternoon’s coaching session you can complete your “homework” (your Tutor will be sure to set you plenty!) or practise in your room on a digital piano.
On alternate evenings we take you to restaurants well-known for their atmosphere and regional cooking (dinner with wine included in course fees), while on the other evenings there are many bars, tavernas, trattorias, pizzarias and restaurants for you to discover in the surrounding villages and towns. Note, this being Italy, don’t expect to get a meal before 20.00 – and don’t expect to be back in bed much before midnight!
Weekends you have time to explore further afield and browse local markets, discover museums, cultural treasures and art, or perhaps visit a vineyard – there is much to do and see – but note public transport is virtually non-existent, so renting a car is essential if you plan to explore more than the immediate locality.
