Levels & Methodology:
Language and Music for Life's summer music and language courses are designed primarily for highly motivated musicians with a level of musical knowledge enabling them to derive maximum benefit from high quality tuition.

The course is open to musicians preparing for national, international exams or competitions, as well as to skilled amateurs. 

Our music and language project functions in a context which is rich in individual ability, motivation, language, culture and generations.

Learning is not to be restricted to its manifestation in performance, though this is an essential part, but is to be intimately linked to the dynamics of the whole individual who is able to learn while changing, and able to change while learning.

Reviews from Parents:
•  "I also would like to give my heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to attend the LMFL course in Firenze. It was an honour to study with such wonderful teachers, as well as gain valuable experience.

The chance to meet so many other gifted people from across the globe, and work with them; was a great experience. Again, thank you and I hope to go back next year!"

Craig Walstead, Composer, USA

•  "Thanks for the videos – and thank you also for the course – very nice to go back some weeks in time and recall what all was done. It was an exhausting but excellent period – Ben really liked it very much (as well as his Mom and Dad). Also we believed he developed his general sense of music very well.

As a matter of fact we now plan to come back next summer and will try to make the enrolment soon. Thanks and best wishes."

Ben, composer, pianist, Thailand

•  "First of all let me spend two words on Cecilia's stay during these two weeks and a half. We are very happy that she has been so well with all you, her tutors and her actual roommates. She told us she would have stayed some more time and that she is very sad in leaving! This is for us and I suppose for you too the best result of this music and language course. We look forward to seeing her photos and video to live again with her this experience..Thank you so much again for your kindness and availability."
Antonello & Marina Costa

•  "Let me take this opportunity to say that Marta only has good words about the course and about her experience during those days. It was her first international experience and I am sure that she will never forget it. 

We were also amazed of her significant progress in just two weeks! Our congratulations for facilitating music students such a great team and warm climate. I hope we can repeat next year."
