Studying at STM

STM is the first Italian musical theater school to be accredited by AFAM – MUIR (the Italian Ministry of University Education & Research), and we are the only one to be located inside renowned and traditional working.

STM’s mission places students at the center of its training programs. Only a few students are admitted each year to our professional courses. Small classes are of the essence for the most rewarding experience.

Acceptance to the academic program is selective as this will enable each individual student to develop wholesomely into an actor while being guided closely by faculty experts and working professionals.

STM has the richest syllabus of those approved by MUIR, along with the greatest amount of teaching hours per year.

Faculty members work very closely with the students on both an individual and small group basis to develop the potential of each student performer.
