BRESCIA ITALY 2022
The Seicorde Academy guitar specialization course is aimed at students of any age and nationality. The lessons will be held in Brescia from Wednesday 7 to Sunday 11 September 2022 at the International Academy of Guitar in Brescia and is held by two internationally renowned musicians and teachers: Lucio Matarazzo and Giulio Tampalini.
Students enrolled in the Seicorde Academy will have the opportunity to follow individual lessons with both teachers, attend the lessons of the other students and take part in all the initiatives related to the course. In addition, students interested in playing with a string quartet will be able, on a voluntary basis and up to a maximum of 7 seats, to attend lessons and rehearsals with the members of the Bazzini Consort aimed at preparing a public concert at the end of the course. For those who wish, it is possible to enroll in the masterclass for guitar and strings, without following the individual guitar lessons. During the Seicorde Academy there will also be a masterclass on the work of Angelo Gilardino held by Lucio Matarazzo, who has studied extensively with the guitarist and composer from Vercelli. To participate it is necessary to submit a study of free choice from the collection “60 Studies of virtuosity and transcendence”.
At the end of the course, the best students of the course will be selected by a commission formed by the teachers, chaired by Filippo Michelangeli, to create a CD that will be published and attached to the guitar magazine Seicorde in 2023. The course is reserved for a maximum number of 24 students and the deadline for registration is set for July 31, 2022.
The Seicorde Academy also provides for the awarding of prize concerts offered by the Martial Music Festival of Seveso (MI) and the Bazzini Consort Orchestra of Brescia and two scholarships awarded by the “La Passione di Yara” Association.
