Early Music – Master’s Programme

Performance Programmes in Music ⎢Master's Level


Description of Programme of Study

The Performance Programme, Early Music, aims to train musicians that possess excellent artistic and professional qualities.

On completion of the programme, the student must have adequate knowledge and skill to be able to comfortably work within the various functions and engagements of the professional musician: either as a soloist, a member of an established ensemble or in independent projects.

The student must also have developed the skills necessary for continued or in-depth studies that are to a great degree autonomous. Furthermore, on completion of the programme, the student must have acquired basic entrepreneurial skills that increase his/her professional versatility in an ever-changing cultural life.

The programme of study consists of compulsory and optional courses. The academic year is divided into weeks of scheduled classes, project weeks and weeks for independent studies as well as examination and assignment weeks.

Teaching takes place either individually or in group form. Playing in ensemble form is an important element of the programme. Teaching of the primary instrument of study is carried out in the form of individual classes.

Guest lecturers are used extensively. Teaching is planned in detail in consultation with students. Students are expected to take initiative in this process.

Once the programme is successfully completed, students are awarded a degree of Master in Music.
