To achieve these goals, it's essential that we get to know you before your departure.

Music School of Voghenza and Head Office of Philharmonic Band of Voghenza

Via Europa no. 8 (Voghenza, province of FERRARA)


The history of the Philharmonic Band of Voghenza began in 1856, thanks to the tenacity and passion of Maestro Onorato Gandolfi, who decided to give music as a gift to our community, to accompany solemn moments and give everyone the opportunity to feel part of a band ensemble. Onorato Gandolfi's greatest desire was to support and cultivate vocations and talents, if we are here to make music, if our young people accompany us on this adventure, it is thanks to him.

Can I participate in the music and Italian summer even if I have been studying music for a very short time?

YES!!! We will welcome you even if you have ZERO experience, our motto is “From ZERO to HERO”!!!

We have an adequate number of teachers to ensure that each of you is adequately followed: you will have an educational program to follow during your week, created based on your level, your aptitudes and your objectives. Consequently, the musical summer school is suitable for students of all levels, including those who have just started playing.


How can the music summer school benefit those with prior music experience?

If you already have experience in music, don't worry - the campus is designed to provide a personalized educational path for all levels. Before enrolling, we'll have an introductory interview that will allow us to tailor your study plan based on your goals and starting level.


Is the music summer campus suitable for all ages?

Absolutely! We've had students ranging from 8 to 80 years old attend our summer campus in previous years, so there's no age limit. If you're concerned about being the only one in your age group, we're happy to provide information on the ages of the other attendees or suggest a week that might be a better fit.


Can I stay in a single room at the hotel during the music summer campus?

Yes, you can! However, availability of single rooms is dependent on the hotel, so we can't guarantee their availability. Despite this, in recent years we haven't encountered any issues with organizing single rooms.


I've been studying music for a long time, I would like to enroll to achieve specific goals, could the music summer campus be what I'm looking for?

Just like for those who have recently started studying music, the campus week offers a tailor-made educational path even for those who have a richer experience and have been studying for longer. Remember that, before enrolling, we will have an introductory interview which will be useful for you and us to get to know each other: this first meeting will have educational value because it will allow us to understand your starting level and prepare your weekly study plan based on yours. goals.
