    When I look back at my time here at the Accademia dell’Arte, there are many things that stand out as memorable and even, in some cases, life changing. Something in particular that stands out as a weekly memory would be movement classes with Stella. No matter how hard a day I was having at the time, movement...

    Coming into this program, I was not sure what changes to expect in my musical perspective. I knew I would become more “cultured,” have more time to practice horn, and eat some incredible food (the bomboloni will always have a special place in my heart), but I didn’t know if I would have a...

    Surprises and Expectations: Three current music students discuss their experience in Italy so far

    by  • September 24, 2014 • Music Program, Uncategorized • 0 Comments


    Before arriving in Italy, I thought myself mad for not being overly thrilled to live in another country for three months.  Most study abroad students I spoke with could only describe their continuously fueled excitement and amazement for living in a foreign land. I, however, was scared beyond reason.  Not scared to be away...

    Katy and Joanna

    What won’t stick out when I look back on my time here at ADA? But I think what I’ll remember most is the pure freedom to create, encouragement to do so and collaborate with those around me from teachers, and willingness and excitement to work together and make something happen from my peers (or...

    Snow Fall 2013

    I’m the kind of person who over-thinks everything. This tendency of mine gets me stuck in a lot of stressful ruts, because I put too much pressure on myself to “get it right.” So when Marjana told us in voice class, “Don’t sing the song. Let the song sing you,” I was a little...

    Sasha Waltz

    With the twin losses of my loving, supportive fraternity and a serious relationship, the conclusion of my sophomore year at Muhlenberg left me emotionally cratered. I performed my on-campus summer job as a walking vacancy: begging for fulfillment, yet unable to trust that any positive emotional anchor would outlive situations over which I had...
