Interdisciplinary Bachelor’s Degree - Major MusicBecome a music teacher

Course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Music
Regular course length 8 semesters
Options Classical music, Jazz/Rock/Pop

Since the winter semester 2004/2005, the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media (Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover - HMTMH) has offered a bachelor’s degree programme jointly with the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University, Hanover (Hanover University). This Joint Bachelor’s Degree programme embraces two academic (teaching) subjects (major and minor subject) and the field of professional studies, in which general qualifications (education, psychology and key skills) are taught. Two obligatory placements, arranged with the desired profession in mind, allow students to come into contact with their later occupational field at an early stage. Students begin with the major subject Music at HMTMH in the first year of study, working in particular on the musical basics. From the second year of study onwards the student enrols in parallel at Hanover University, or at HMTMH for the minor subject Media Management. The programme can be embarked upon only in the winter semester. For information on the subjects offered under this programme at Hanover University, please visit http://www.uni-hannover.de/en/studium/studienfuehrer/faecher-bachelor/index.php


On certain conditions, the degree entitles holders to continue with a Master’s Degree course (e.g. the joint Master’s Degree course of HMTMH and the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University for a higher secondary teaching qualification).

Scope and structure of the course
The course covers three areas: two academic/teaching subjects and the field of professional studies. According to the examination regulations, the two academic/teaching subjects are studied as a combination of one major and one minor subject (in a ratio of approximately 2:1). The professional studies field covers two areas: on the one hand education studies (education and psychology) and on the other hand key skills.

Subject combinations in the FüBA (interdisciplinary Bachelor's degree programme):
You can currently choose your artistic major and minor from the following instrumental subjects, taking into account the respective field of study:
Accordion, recorder flute, electric bass, electric guitar, bassoon, flute, voice, guitar, horn, double bass, piano, clarinet, keyboard, oboe, organ, trombone, saxophone, percussion, trumpet, tuba, viola, violin, violoncello.
Piano and voice must be among the three Artistic Subjects.
Piano and keyboard cannot be studied at the same time.

Examples:
1. your artistic major is Tuba or another instrument: then your first artistic minor is Piano and your second artistic minor is voice.
2. your artistic major is singing: then your first artistic minor is piano and your second artistic minor is one of the other instruments from the list above.
3. your artistic major is piano: then your first artistic minor is voice and your second artistic minor is one of the other instruments listed above.
4. your artistic major is conducting or composition or music theory or rhythm: then your first artistic minor is piano and your second artistic minor is voice.
Conducting, composition, music theory and rhythmics are only offered as artistic majors and can therefore not be chosen as artistic minors.

Skills taught during the course:

This joint Bachelor’s degree course focuses on the acquisition of artistic, academic and educational skills that are of fundamental importance in music teaching professions. Depending on the later career objectives, individual focuses will be set during the course, with the purpose of enhancing particular skills that qualify the student for the profession concerned.
