Music in Education Intensive
Do you have strong educational and teaching skills and/or are you working as a music teacher? Have you completed an instrumental or vocal music degree programme (Bachelor of Music)? If so, the two-year Music in Education programme is the next step. This programme leads to a teaching qualification for all levels of education, allowing you to use your own musical skills in a broader musical context. After graduation, you will be a Bachelor of Music in Education.
The curriculum of this degree course is a challenging compilation from the four-year curriculum of the regular Music in Education programme. Depending on your experience and background, you may be granted exemptions for certain subjects and increase the number of options. The programme is tailored to your individual situation. Education is provided both face-to-face and online. If you are not granted any exemptions, you will have two days of face-to-face instruction on Thursdays and Fridays, not including teacher training/work and independent study.
The subjects offered include teaching skills and media, educational theory, knowledge of art and culture, chord accompaniment, singing, choral training/conducting and ensemble playing. All this relies heavily on teaching practice or works in a relevant art-educational environment (education or art education).
An intake assessment is required to gain insight into your potential for development and eligibility for exemptions. This will take place on the dates of the regular entrance examinations in Spring.
