The Academia Quick Course
Why A.C. Quick Course?
The violin is a special instrument, we all know it as one of the most secret instruments that have been created over the centuries. Cremona is the undisputed city of the violin, where the know-how to build this work of art has been handed down from entire generations of luthiers.
But how can all the fans who want to try their hand at this work do, especially if they have never tried it before?
Hence the idea of creating practical training workshops, which take place in one, two or three weeks, held by expert Masters in the different construction phases and specially studied in the contents, offering methods and techniques of immediate use.
Classroom teaching is supported by the highest quality materials, by complete equipment, selected and developed by Academia Cremonensis itself. In this way each student will be able to experience a highly professional working environment, in a unique cultural and social context of violin making, acquiring professional responsibilities.
