Each year the Accademia receives hundreds of applications from young musicians all over the world, and has an acceptance rate of 6%. Every young artist that attends one of our courses receives a full scholarship, covering tuition, accommodation, and meal expenses.
Throughout our application and audition process, our mission is to identify and support the best young artists we can find from all over the world, regardless of their nationality or socioeconomic status.
Creating a supportive, highly-effective mentorship environment depends upon connecting young artists with an exceptional faculty. The Accademia has a rotating faculty each of year of permanent and guest teachers, including some of the best opera singers, conductors, vocal coaches, language experts, and industry professionals of today. Past faculty has included Jonathan Papp (Artistic Director of the GSA), Maestro Richard Bonynge, Barbara Frittoli, Leo Nucci, Angela Gheorghiu, Jose Carreras, and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, among many others.
