The range of instruction available was comprehensive, covering not only a variety of instruments including the pianoforte, organ, strings, and wind instruments, but also encompassing harmony, composition, orchestral playing, and even the aesthetics of music and Italian language – an essential for opera training. This breadth of study reflects the serious commitment to a well-rounded musical education.
