world of musical communication.

The aim is to give voice to and support those who wish to express themselves through music;
help composers and interpreters to achieve their musical goals, works and interpretations
in order to present themselves to today's musical world professionally.
The seminars are aimed at anyone who wishes to develop their own artistic project. The educational program is based on what the individual is and wished to obtain. The work is done on each individual's work. There is no pre-established repertoire to study.
Interpreters, composers or songwriters who wish to finalize their own musical project will be supported in every phase of the program, culminating in the final production of a musical piece.
"To enrich our personal space
with the external world and its wonders"
Through the exclusive access to two of the most important digital archives of music - Classical.com, one of the largest online portals of classical music; Academiccharts.com, with exclusive Billboard license, the most important online review of international musical charts concerning pop/rock music from the 1950s to today - it will be possible to study the forms and history of Music, from Handel to Hendrix, from Bach to Lennon, up to todays latest musical trends, without concern for genre boundaries and with the aim to achieve personal artistic fulfillment, may it be interpretative or compositional, in order to give the student the fundamentals of knowledge and inspiration which improve his way of working.
"As in a Renaissment shop, to learn art which gives freedom"
The seminars will be held at Glance Studios of Milan. There will be both group activities
and individual activities. Most of the activities will be done in the recording studio,
in order to give the students a feel of a professional context. The recording studio
is the place in which an artistic project is created and completed, with the final
project being a digital recording of one's own personal artistic project and a
participation statement issued by Educational Music Academy.
