           Massimo Bertucci, Michele Campanella, starting at the beginning of
The course will run during the academic year 2009/2010, Laura De Fusco
October 2009.

The course aims to train pianists using Vincenzo Vitale's methods, which are based on
observations of the pianist’s hand and arm movements. Maestro Vitale has demonstrated
his pedagogical talent by combining the basic anatomical and physiological principles with
his invaluable experience in adapting them to the pianist’s specific needs.
The “Vincenzo Vitale” Centre for Piano Studies aims to be part of the old and glorious
Neapolitan piano school tradition, while reconnecting the thread to generations of great
pianists, thread which today is close to be lost The heritage left by Vitale cannot be lost or,
worse still, misinterpreted with thousands of deviations. In order to protect and pass this
knowledge on to future generations throughout Italy and abroad, this initiative has been
launched in collaboration with the University Suor Orsola Benincasa.

Individual lessons are scheduled for a total of 16 hours.
The dates of the lessons will be decided by individual teachers for their own classes.

Massimo Bertucci and Michele Campanella will be assisted by Stefania Bertucci and
Monica Leone. Students enrolled on these classes will therefore benefit from lessons held
by both the teachers and the assistants.
The class of Michele Campanella and Monica Leone is also open to students interested in
perfecting their repertoire for four hand piano and two pianos.
Massimo Bertucci and Michele Campanella will teach during two days a month to a
maximum of 8 students each (4 in each class); Laura De Fusco will teach on a monthly
basis to a maximum of 4 students.

Lessons missed by students due to reasons beyond the responsibility of the organisation
will not be replaced, except if the timetable of the respective teacher allows for it.

The Course operates on the basis of a numerus clausus, with a maximum of 20
students. A class will only be started if a minimum of 2 students have enrolled.

Enrolment on the course is depending on an entry exam, held by the teachers. The
exam date will be published on the University board, on this link and on
