Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement (DS) is a supplementary document obtained at the end of a course of study in a university or in a higher education institution.
The Diploma Supplement describes the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies carried out and completed by the student, according to an 8-point standard model, developed by the European Commission, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.


To expand its educational offer, the Institute organizes a series of Masterclasses called “Grandi Firme per la Didattica” with Masters and concert performers of great prestige in the international music artistic scene.

Music Training Courses

The Institute “V. Bellini” of Caltanissetta organizes extracurricular courses called Musical Training Courses with the aim of providing adequate theoretical and practical preparation, to access Preparatory Courses established by D.M. 382 of 11.05.2018.
The Training Course is 5 years; it can be shortened provided that all the skills are acquired and the age of the student is appropriate to access Preparatory Courses (enrolled in the 3rd year of the 2nd grade Secondary School), except, for those who undertake the path for the “Enhancement of young talents” provided for by art. 5 of D.M. 382/2018.
These courses are entrusted to highly qualified personnel with proven experience identified through a public selection call.
The students of these courses are periodically monitored by the Teachers of the Institute
