Courses

COMPLETE PROGRAM FOR CONDUCTORS (Triennial):
First academic year: 10 weekends in the presence, for a total of 75 hours in addition to online and self-administered training activities, for a total of another 80 hours. In addition to these subjects there are 65 hours of choral repertoire and choir conducting with guest teachers, in the form of masterclasses also open to outsiders. The second and third academic years will be very similar to the first.

BASIC COURSE FOR CONDUCTORS (Annual):
10 weekends for those who have never followed anything specific about direction, on the same weekends as the Triennial School for Directors. Those enrolled in the Basic Course will be able to attend the masterclasses as listeners.

EDUCATIONAL COURSE FOR SINGERS (Annual):
Each academic year: at least 10 face-to-face evening meetings, lasting 2.5 hours each, on subjects related to choral literacy (sung reading, vocalism, listening education, monographic seminars). Courses carried out in all the provinces of the Region. The meetings can be carried out in presence, online and in mixed mode (presence and online).

ADMINISTRATION, COMMUNICATION AND CHORAL MANAGEMENT COURSE (ACM) (Annual):
5 online training meetings (lasting 2 hours each) to manage and grow a choral association.

Exams

END OF MATTER TEST

Following the regular attendance of at least 3 years at the AERCO Choral Academy (ACC), it is possible to request to take the final exam with the release of a Diploma of Merit. Furthermore, at the end of the three-year period, there will be the possibility of attending a year or more of a master’s degree. Within the master, participants will attend the same courses as the three-year school in addition to the opportunity to activate research paths aimed at achieving the master itself.
