The Liceo Musicale Lucio Dalla (Highschool with a curriculum in music studies) was established in Bologna in 2012, as a section of the Laura Bassi Highschool.
The Liceo is named after the great Bolognese singer-songwriter who passed away on that same year.
Since 2016 the Liceo has been relocated in via del Riccio 5/5. It has a Music Technologies Lab, a recording studio, multimedia equipment and music instruments. There is also a Music Library with 1400 donated works.
For young people interested in specialising in music, the Liceo Musicale “Lucio Dalla” is a real opportunity to learn and be introduced to the rich and complex world of music professions.
In addition to a solid pre-university cultural education, students receive a theoretical and practical education in western art music and in contemporary cultures and production process, developing skills to work in a variety of cultural and professional contexts.
The study curriculum includes: Ensemble Music Laboratory, Music History, Music Technologies, Music Theory, Analysis and Composition and practical classes in two instruments. At present, students can choose among the following classes: singing, classic guitar, clarinet, double bass, bassoon, accordion, flute, oboe, piano, saxophone, percussion instruments, trumpet, violin and cello.
The Liceo develops projects in partnership with local authorities and companies and takes part in existing projects: school-work program, research and action internships, school trips, multimedia labs, artistic, musical and literary productions.
It gives access to all university courses – especially to the DAMS (Department of Dance, Art, Music and Theatre) and other courses in the history, art and humanities field – and to Music Conservatoires and Academies of Performing Arts and Dance. It also provides students with musical skills to be applied to new and interesting fields of work: musical assistants, sound engineers, educators and entertainers, music therapists, experts in the conservation and restoration of musical heritage, sound processing and multimedia production technicians, expert journalism.
