What can I expect in this study area?

Professional field for which the course qualifies

The course qualifies graduates of the Music Education option or comparable qualifications for musical (instrumental and vocal) work with groups of children, young people, adults and senior citizens in
extracurricular and educational contexts. Through the teaching of EMP-specific methods (experimenting, improvising, creating in close connection with singing/speaking, elementary instrumental playing and movement/dance), students develop skills that also qualify them for the field of elemental music-making practice, for example in the basic subject area of music schools and for interdisciplinary project work with different target groups.

The acquisition of special didactic knowledge and practical experience in instrumental or vocal music-making with larger groups and in the area of so-called class music-making enables graduates to develop flexible concepts for mixed-instrument (large) group lessons, instrument-specific (small) group lessons or voice work with children, adolescents and adults, in which they naturally apply principles of (elemental) instrumental and vocal pedagogy such as music-making learning, internal differentiation and body orientation.
