The Virtuosi Music Academy was funded in 2009 at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, Connecticut. The mission of the school is to teach music performance at the highest level, and to instill the passion for this art form among all ages.
Tuition Free Advanced Performance Certificate Program is deigned to give an opportunity to develop a young and talented musician at a professional level without financial burden through instrumental studies, chamber music sessions, public performances schedule and a recording project. The program includes weekly lessons, chamber music coaching, participation in public performances and occasional master classes with renowned visiting artists, lectures.
At the community level, we offer lessons in Violin, Viola, Cello, Double bass, Piano, Voice and Chamber Music Ensemble, as well as Music theory and Solfege for younger age students. Our community division students have been receiving high scores in the Regional and Allstate auditions. We also offer practical training with the CT Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra members for players that are pursuing music as their primary career.
Music is proven over and over to have a very positive impact on creative thinking, especially if introduced early in life. Having a complete education in music can yield great benefits in life.
Have Fun Learning!!
