Monthly subscription for lessons

Since October we’ve seen the enrolment of pianists, violinists, singers and jazz saxophonists. The steady growth of our school means that we can make move to a friendlier payment scheme. Previously, the cost of 1-to1 lessons was €400 in advance for 16 weeks (one semester, essentially). Now, students can pay a monthly subscription fee of €100 for 1-to-1 lessons, or €60 for group lessons (minimum group size of 2). As ever, the annual Association Membership fee of €50 applies.

We are particularly enthusiastic about group lessons. These are of great benefit to beginners. Why? Well:

  • Group learning stimulates creativity and allows students to see how their peers find solutions to mutual challenges in learning the instrument and certain techniques.
  • Healthy competition encourages students to keep up with their class-mates.
  • One of the best parts of playing music is playing music with other people, so why wait? Getting used to playing music with others from the beginning will help make the transition easier later on when approaching chamber music or an orchestra.
  • Of course, this option is also more economic!

If anyone has further questions, or would like to arrange a free trial lesson, as ever we can be contacted through the website, or by Facebook.

Barcolana, Mimì e Cocotte and Open Day

International Music School is pleased to invite you to two events coming up soon in the centre of Trieste, one of which shall take place during Barcolana and the other just the following weekend.

Barcolana

On the 9th October we will offer music over breakfast, in collaboration with Mimì e Cocotte, on the race day of Barcolona. This year you could have a view of the gulf from the rooftop of one of the best museums in Trieste to watch the regatta, with breakfast provided by the fantastic Mimì e Cocotte and music provided by IMS Ensemble; a brass quintet and programme tailored for your special Sunday morning breakfast on the top of Museo Revoltella. The quintet (of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba) will perform a mixture of traditional Italian music, tango, and pop arrangements of music by The Beatles and others.

Barcolana is the largest sailing Regatta in the world; it draws around 25,000 sailors and around 250,000 spectators. During the event of Barcolona, which is just over a week (this year from 30th September to the 9th October), there is much to see and do any so we are proud to be a part of this legendary event this year.

See the Facebook event page for more information – please note that places must be booked in advance and spaces for this special occasion are limited, so hurry!

Open Day

Then, on the 15th October from 1600 until 1900 we shall host an Open Day at our school in Piazza Benco, 4, Trieste 34122. On the day we shall present all of the instruments for which we shall offer courses, and prospective students, children and adults alike, will have the opportunity to see, touch and hear all of the instruments. The teachers will be delighted to talk about their instrument and what students can expect to learn at their level, and how the teacher will help them progress to the next level and beyond.

See the map below for directions!

 

 

Syllabus & Exam Preparation

What are we teaching?

At IMS Trieste the default syllabus used for the students will be that of the Trinity College London. These exams are internationally recognised, held to the same standard worldwide and are regulated. Trinity College have arrangements in place with educational authorities around the world in order to maintain internationally accepted accreditation.

Types of exams

Trinity offers exams graded from 1 – 8 for a wide variety of instruments that covers all the courses available at IMS Trieste. These exams will test students on their ability to perform pieces, technical exercises, sight reading, aural skills, improvisation and general musical knowledge.

There are other exams without the supporting tests that focus just on performance. These exams offer certificates for three levels; foundation (grade 3), intermediate (grade 5) and advanced (grade 8 equivalent).

IMS Trieste can also prepare students for exams at state owned Italian institutions such as the “Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Tartini” of Trieste. This includes admission exams for courses of the higher level (e.g bachelor/triennio).
