FM1-MUS1-10 Musicianship 1

Course description for academic year 2019/2020

Contents and structure


In this introductory course, students have the opportunity to get to know each other and the music through their own performances and practical and creative processes. The resources in the class form the basis for the further musical activities, as well as for the development of and reflection on students' own musical praxis. Developing the performance, personal and artistic sides of music requires practice and maturation over a long period. An introduction to music practice and methodology helps form the basis for the rest of the programme.

The course covers the following main topics:

  • Performative music production
