EDUCATION

Academia Cremonensis

All classroom teaching are supported by the highest quality materials and complete equipment selected and developed by the Academia Cremonensis, so every student will experience the access to a professional work environment. They also have knowledge of the cultural and social context of violin making, taking their professional responsibilities seriously.

Most of the lesson hours are individual and take place in each student's workbench, in support of those practices we provide focused and collective theory lessons.

This combination of workshop hours and conceptual hours, in which the student's practical activities are considered the essential part of the study, is what makes the experience of all Academia Cremonensis education programs unique.

There are no "textbooks" as such as all students have constant insights and content from teachers and are encouraged to record the experiences made during the semesters, basically producing their "textbooks". Learning in Academia Cremonensis is a noncompetitive activity.

Academia Cremonensis produces graduates who are technically and academically advantaged compared to their public-school counterparts and who constantly get prizes in international competitions, often with instruments built over the school years.
