One of the most prestigious schools of advanced music training in Italy, the Accademia di Musica di Pinerolo has been open since 1994 and each year has more than 500 students enrolled in its many courses and masterclasses: piano, viola, violin, cello, orchestra training and chamber music.

Absolutely new in the field of music education in Italy, the first Scuola di Specializzazione post laurea in Beni Musicali Strumentali (Postgraduate Specialist Courses in Music Performance – 3rd cycle) will begin in the 2019/2020 academic year. The courses, in solo piano, solo contemporary piano, violin, viola and cello are recognised by the MUR (Ministry for Universities and Research).

As well as the many taught courses offering rigorous training for potential professional musicians, the Accademia has its own concert season and biannually holds an international chamber music Competition.
