The Woodwind & Brass and Timpani & Percussion programmes are post-graduate courses aimed at instrumentalists in possession of outstanding playing qualities who want to pursue a professional career in music. The courses are taught by the Principals of the Orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
The course duration of each course is one academic year.
These courses are not aimed at obtaining a Diploma; upon completion of the course, and provided regular attendance of lessons and artistic activities, a certificate of attendance will be issued upon request. Particularly deserving students may be involved in artistic activities organized during the year, such as, for example, the participation in the concerts of the Ensemble Novecento.
