Beautiful Venue in Florence, Northern Italy:

The capital city of the Tuscany region, Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance. Home to masterpieces of architecture and art, it lies at the heart of much of the entire Western musical tradition.

• Our summer music program will be held at the Villa Favard di Rovezzano, the oldest part of the Conservatory Luigi Cherubini of Florence site.

• Situated in the middle of a beautiful botanical park with cedar trees and roses, the Villa Favard di Rovezzano has a concert hall, a large number of piano studios (including grand pianos), and lots of music studios.

• Our central administrative building is in the centre of the Old Town at the Piazza delle Belle Arti.

Elena, Russia

•  "L.M.F.L. is a musical experience any musician should go through, whether amateur or professional. As a student you are challenged in all fronts, from the personal front to the collective one, where not only must you play your instrument or compose with the best of your skills, but also manage to work as a team to accomplish excellence."
LMFL Student

•  "The Venice course was beyond belief, it was one of the best experiences I’ve had in my life! I cannot wait to go back to the course! There is no way that I can express the full extent of my gratitude towards you and Alan for helping me out and giving me this opportunity, both me and my parents would like to express our most sincere gratitude and love towards my adoptive grandparents in Europe…"
