Basic course fee of £800 includes registration, administration costs, use of facilities on the premises, choir, main orchestra and string orchestra or guitar ensemble as applicable.

Information about extra charges for specialist tuition, accommodation etc is available on the application form.

Students of the Firenze Conservatoire do not pay the basic registration fee.

he Firenze Course is an adult course and we expect most of our participants to find and book their own lodging. Please note that it is advisable to book accommodation in Firenze as long as 11 months in advance.

However, we know that our younger adults coming from far and wide may find it difficult to identify the right place and the right price and may wish to be in the same place.

For returning LMFL students who are under 18 and up to 23, seven shared bedrooms in a private supervised home (five minutes’ walk from Villa Favard). This is for approved returning students only so you will need your LMFL registration details to make a booking.

The air-conditioned rooms are shared (two or three beds) with their own bathrooms. Breakfast included. Accommodation costs must be settled at registration.

Another interesting place for students who are on budget is Villa Camerata (https://firenze.aighostels.it/?lang=en). This economical students’ hostel must be booked directly in advance.

You can find:

– Dormitories with two, three or four shared rooms and even single rooms
– There is also a campsite and the landscape is spectacular (olive trees, wine etc)
