Summer Master Classes

2016 – Montisi

 One of the Piccola Accademia’s most important activities is to provide students and recent graduates with exceptional master classes in harpsichord performance. The combination of our instrument collection, the quality of teaching at the Piccola Accademia, superb acoustics and the quiet and relaxed nature of life in the Tuscan countryside, creates a special environment in which to study and be inspired.

This summer the Piccola Accademia will offer a program of 3 courses free of tuition fees to eligible students. However a non-refundable registration fee is required for each course. The registration fee includes meals during the course.


The registration fee for the class of Ketil Haugsand is 210 €, inclusive of six full days of teaching and meals during the course (7 dinners and 6 lunches). The registration fee for the classes of Richard Egarr and Christophe Rousset is 195 €, inclusive of five full days of teaching and meals during the course (6 dinners and 5 lunches).


To qualify, students must be presently enrolled in a university level music study or be recently graduated.


Application time February 15 – May 30. The classes will be filled in the order of the accepted applications, so early registration is recommended.
