Though the natural and cultural beauty of Italy is inspiring and alluring, ASMI is a serious institute with a focus on work and improvement. Please schedule any sight seeing trips either before or after the Institue. There will be one day trip offered to Corona, where the faculty concert will take place. The institute will require your full focus and commitment, and the schedule is full, with a rich offering of musical activities throughout the day. It is encouraged and recommended to practice during free time. Students are expected to prepare their repertoire well in advance of attending the institute, so that rehearsals and coachings are efficient, fruitful, and respectful of everyone’s time.

Thank you,
Emil Altschuler, Director
