Musical Performance and Education (Master of Music)Instrument Teaching | Choir and ensemble conducting

The Master’s degree course in Musical Performance and Education brings together graduates from a number of different first degree courses and leads to an advanced qualification in musical performance and education. It enables students with particular aptitudes to further develop the vocational knowledge and skills they have acquired during a Bachelor’s degree course and also to enhance their organisational abilities and artistic profiles, in order to qualify them particularly for positions of leadership or management in the field of musical performance and education and/or for a freelance career.

There are three alternative principal study subject areas corresponding to the three different areas from which prospective students will be drawn: Principal instrumental study subject (A); Additional artistic subject / Teaching method (B) and Choir and ensemble direction (C).

The Principal study subject A (Principal instrumental subject) enables particularly talented graduate instrument teachers to build upon the standards of playing they have acquired while following the Bachelor’s degree course in "Musical Performance". This includes the broadening and deepening of their instrumental technique and their personal qualities of independent interpretational expression, the development of a secure feeling for style, a high-calibre repertoire, new instrumental techniques, and a broad musical spectrum for the greatest possible degree of professional flexibility.

Principal study area B (Additional artistic subject / Teaching method) enables students on the one hand to supplement the principal instrument skills they have acquired during a Bachelor’s degree course in Musical Performance, in particular by devoting themselves in more depth to specific subsidiary instruments; while on the other hand they are also able to systematically enhance their knowledge and skills in instrumental teaching in a manner comparable with the standards of basic Instrument teacher training at the HMTMH.

Principal study area C (Choir and ensemble direction) enables graduates to undertake musical performance and educational work in the amateur and semi-professional field with vocal and instrumental groups (choirs and orchestras) and/or groups with special educational needs. The principal study area also covers voice and singing method, pianoforte for ensemble accompaniment, undertaking a placement/an internship, educational theory and methodology, sight reading, tonic sol-fa and ear training/aural analysis.

In the part of the curriculum that is common to all students, the practical section is complemented by Chamber music/Ensemble playing or singing and a predominantly practical own choice subject. In the practical vocational part, advanced knowledge of music physiology, self-management and additional study of teaching methods in the principal study subject are offered. In addition, students pursue a field of academic study and a compulsory own choice subject.

The course is concluded by an extended Master’s degree project (in place of a dissertation) related to the principal study subject which the student is to realise independently and which he or she will be occupied with for the greater part of the fourth semester. Because of this, the final examinations in the principal study subject areas A and B are brought forward to the end of the third semester. Concurrently with the concluding project, however, the student continues to receive tuition in his or her principal study subject, and a project seminar is offered.
