The Three-Year Level I Course is a course of study approved by the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and Research under its Decree no. 203 dated 22 September 2010. The qualification obtained at the end of the course is equivalent to a Bachelor Degree, and a high school diploma is required for entry, in addition to an entrance examination.

Particularly talented students may be admitted even before they obtain their high school diploma, but this qualification must be obtained before they complete the Level I Course. In accordance with Italian Decree Law 1905-B dated 23 December 2010 (Art. 29 (21), students may attend a Conservatory Level I or II course while simultaneously attending a university faculty, with the sole obligation that they must obtain at least 90 Academic Credits (from the two institutions combined) during each academic year.

At the end of the Level I Course in Voice, students will have acquired specific technical and cultural skills enabling them to put their artistic aspirations into practice. To ensure this, the course of study focuses in particular on the most representative vocal repertoire (operatic, symphonic, religious and chamber music) and the relative performance techniques, and also aims to equip students to interact within musical ensembles of various kinds. To this end, importance will also be given to developing the student’s ear and to specific knowledge of the models underlying the organisation, composition and analysis of music.

There will be a specific focus on the appropriate postural and emotional control techniques. After completing the Level I Course, students will also have acquired in-depth knowledge of stylistic, historic and aesthetic factors relating to music in general and their chosen areas of specialisation. The course also includes teaching of the necessary musical IT skills, and a second EU language.

At present, the main teacher of the Level I Course in Voice is Maria Costanza Nocentini, soprano
