The academic course for applied music affords young musicians the attainment of a 1st Level Academic Diploma in the Artistic and Musical Higher Education (AFAM) system, equivalent to a three-year university diploma.

The educational path benefits from the possibility of participating in the Erasmus+ program, allotting students some periods to study abroad while taking advantage of prestigious foreign professors’ presence at the School, for whom the same formula is applied.

During the Triennio in Applied Music, the young musicians acquire the specific technical and cultural skills that will permit them to concretely realize artistic ideas, their own and others’, thanks to the use of techniques and technologies relative to the musical repertoire applied in the cinema, general animation, the theatre, in various systems of multimedia communication, and arrangement in various styles with diverse ensembles.

Skills concerning the use of electro-acoustical instruments and technology will  be adequately developed, as well as the planning capacity with reference to installations that require the presence of music.

Included among the educational goals of the advanced courses are honing relevant skills with a secondary common language.

- Arranger in recording studios, radio-television studios;
