The repertoire is determined in collaboration with the main instrument and chamber music teachers.
Main instrument tuition is performed as one-to-one tuition, as master classes and seminars and as classes, including joint interpretation classes. The course also involves work with an accompanist as well as active participation in master classes, seminars and performance projects.

It is emphasised that the student will gain experience working with ensemble formats central to her/his individual main instrument. In addition to scheduled hours and activities communicated through semester plans, students are asked to perform their own musical projects with fellow students and others. Digital tools will be used in tuition when relevant.
Parts of the lessons are mandatory. These parts are communicated at the beginning of the semester through Canvas.
