Professional field for which the course qualifies

The programme is designed to deepen and perfect pedagogical, academic and teaching methodological knowledge and skills, as well as to open up new fields of work in Music Pedagogy. It is designed to qualify Music Pedagogy students for a professional field for which there have been few training opportunities to date. This professional field includes, for example

  • Head of department at a music school
  • Teaching in specialised schools, colleges, vocational schools
  • Work in adult education, especially in the field of further education and training.

It can also serve as preparation for a doctorate in Music Pedagogy and work as a university lecturer.
