The core of our teaching programme revolves around the use of the main instrument and its interplay with other instruments. We strongly focus on the student’s personal development with regards to the main instrument and instruction is mainly given 1-to-1. During the band music classes, the student will be introduced to different styles within the rhythmic field. Apart from band playing, the students will practice with composing, organising, developing and studying their own material. Student concerts and studio recording are integrated parts of the semester programme, and the weekly taught concert subject "interpretation" provides the student with an opportunity to showcase what he or she works with in front of an audience consisting of fellow students and teachers.
Practical theory subjects
Subjects supporting the tuition of the principal instrument are the practical theory subjects: aural training, music theory, music technology, arrangement, composition and entrepreneurship.
You will learn practical techniques and methods that support the use of your principal instrument and strengthen your music professionalism. In addition, the subject music history will provide you with a knowledge base and an in-depth understanding of the music tradition we are in.
The theory of musicology and methodology provides you with knowledge input for the Bachelor's thesis - which you will write during the last semester. You will choose yourself which topic you want to focus on.
The new curriculum (2020) for lower and secondary education opens up to a broader variety of subject choices, and thereby offers more opportunity for students to choose their topic of specialization during their academic studies.
Our student life is characterized by creative musical diversity, and by a wide range of genres. The education programme is based on the rhythmic music tradition and characterized by a close collaboration between teachers and students.
