The European Commission has awarded the “E.R. Duni” of Matera the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education within the Erasmus+ Programme.

The Conservatory of Music “E.R. Duni” in Matera has been aiming for many years at a process of internationalization of academic teaching. The objective of this process is not only the improvement of the quality of teaching training but also the enhancement of social, civic, cultural and human aspects; this is because national and international relations represent relevant aspects for educational life and essential elements for evaluating the impact that the Matera Conservatory has in the social, territorial and international context.

To set and strengthen cooperation actions, inter-institutional agreements have been signed with peer institutions, both in Europe and outside the latter. The criteria for identifying the institutions with which to sign agreements are mainly the international prestige of the Institute furthermore to establish relationships and the ease of direct contact with the teachers or with the management offices of the institutions.

To encourage the search for collaboration between institutions, the Erasmus manager of the Matera Conservatory continually solicits teachers and students. All requests for collaboration received have always been given a positive response in order to offer students and staff a varied choice aimed at promoting and implementing cooperation actions for mobility.

The collaboration network of the Conservatory initially focused on European countries and then outside Europe. The association’s enlargement policy does not place vetoes or restrictions because the musical language, in many cases, overcomes the linguistic barrier and lends itself to various co-productions and artistic collaborations. The training of the Matera Conservatory consists of the following courses:

  • Basic Musical Training Courses, lasting five years, intended for those who begin their musical studies;
  • Preparatory Courses, lasting three years, aimed at preparing the tests for access to first level academic courses;
  • First Academic Tier Courses, lasting three years, which provide for 60 credits per year for a total of 180 credits in the three-year period;
  • Second Academic Tier courses, lasting two years, which provide for 60 credits per year for a total of 120 credits in the two-year period.

One of the most important objectives of the mobility is to offer an integrated training experience between individual training (instrument lessons, singing, composition) and ensemble music (chamber groups, string orchestra, wind orchestra, choir) .

The theoretical and historical disciplines are a transversal training action for those who choose to experience a semester or a year of experience at the Matera Conservatory.

Obviously, adequate linguistic competence is required to obtain credits in the field of theoretical and historical disciplines. Mobility at the Matera Conservatory is open to young musicians of all disciplines (piano, singing, wind instruments, string instruments, percussion, composition, etc.) who want to have a learning experience in a land rich in history, culture and art, such as Italy and, in particular, in Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage city and an ideal place for concentration and optimization of the study process.
