Moving to Milan is an important step. After Rome, it is the second most populous municipality in Italy, the capital of fashion and design, a destination for fast-growing international tourism with a significant economic impact, Milan is an ever-living city that offers many possibilities.

Those who find themselves catapulted into this reality for the first time may find themselves disoriented: this is why our Music School has decided to gather advice and guidance for those moving to Milan.

Moreover, being based in a city full of initiatives, fairs and events is a privilege for CPM and for those enrolled in our courses: over the years, our Music school has in fact created and enriched a network of relationships with the world of work and with cultural realities, instrument stores, agencies that manage housing...activating conventions for our students.

On the page dedicated to the CPM Card, the card we issue to each of our students upon matriculation, you will find all our partners and conventions reserved for those enrolled in our courses.
