The course comprises 1350 training hours which will be distributed over 3 years and organised into teaching units. Obtaining a degree requires the acquisition of 180 credits (ECTS), which can be accumulated and transferred anywhere in Europe.
Solid theoretical and practical pedagogical training underpins the course. Other music practice modules and cross-sectorial skills complete the curriculum.
If enrolled in the bachelor’s degree course:
Guest professors complete the training within the framework of internships and workshops on specific aspects, notably including:
This course also includes an introduction to research through participation in the international instrumental teaching days, where French and international researchers, students and practitioners meet. These meetings, held annually in association with other institutions of higher learning, aim to develop collaborative research projects between French-speaking practitioners and researchers on two continents.
In addition, through the writing of a professional memoire, the students are introduced to research and to objective analysis in relation to the notions dealt with in class (bibliographic research, development of a problematic, a research methodology and hypothesis, argumentation of issues, etc.)
As a complement to the pedagogical internships as tutors (2 x 40 hours) that will take place at the CRR de Toulouse and in various specialised regional institutions (CRR, CRD, CRI), pedagogical practical workshops are held 3 to 4 times per semester with students from the Conservatoire de Toulouse.
These workshops enable “trial runs” in different contexts to be observed and discussed. They constitute a laboratory enabling the theoretical knowledge acquired in core teaching classes to be transferred into the field.
In order to meet the needs of the jazz and contemporary musical fields, collective classes on culture, analysis, writing, improvisation, and computer-aided music, as well as a rhythm workshop have been put in place.
In the same way, for traditional music, specific classes on culture, analysis, recording and ethnomusicology have been established, as well as a musical workshop shared with CRR students in traditional music used as pedagogical laboratories have been set up.
