A typical day
Breakfast with Director/Principal Coach Gil Jetley planning the day’s activities. Typically activities are organised into two-hour sessions – two hours of tuition followed by two hours of supervised practise with your tutor on hand to coach you over any difficulties. This way you consolidate new skills as you go and make dramatic progress.
A break for an ‘al fresco’ lunch and then afternoons can either continue in the same way, or if you prefer to work on your own you can practise on the conservatoire grand, or in private on the digital in your room. (Evening practise is only possible in your room at your accommodation).
Weekends are for relaxing, browsing local markets, strolling along nature walks, exploring cultural treasures and art, or perhaps visiting a vineyard – there is much to do and see – but note public transport is virtually non-existent, so consider renting a car at the airport if you plan to explore more than the immediate locality.
Saturday evenings Course Director Gil takes you to a local restaurant renowned for its atmosphere and regional cooking (included in course fees). This is a good time to discuss and consolidate the week’s progress and plan the week ahead. An Italian dinner is a feast of multiple courses so don’t expect to be back in bed much before midnight!
“Unforgettable weeks of music and Italian joy” (student comment).
