The Early Music reference since half a century

Born almost fifty years ago, when in Italy and in Europe the Early Music movement was taking its first steps, the Urbino Early Music courses have collected over time a unique wealth of experience, which places them at the highest level in the field of early music teaching.

The most prestigious performers and the most experienced teachers

Starting from the legendary pioneers of the sixties as F. Brüggen and G. Leonhardt, the Urbino courses have been maintaining the highest standards with the best teachers and performers of today: A. Bernardini, G. Nasillo, P. O’Dette, R. Alessandrini, S. Montanari, S. Mingardo and many others. The courses offer unique didactic chances and make possible to live the Early Music experience side by side with the most acclaimed teachers and performers.

A unique experience in the gem of the Italian Renaissance

The partaking in UMA courses experience goes beyond the priceless practical advantages. Every year, at the end of July, hundreds of young musicians and music lovers flock in the town of the Duke Federico da Montefeltro: here they will live for ten days surrounded by the beauty of the town, feeling a unique atmosphere that allows to perceive the symmetries of the spaces that many centuries ago spread the notes of the music they love. Painting, sculpture and architecture: but even more the urban spaces of an intact renaissance village as Urbino is, can inspire and motivate the musical imagination as no other town can do.
