The master in organ studies, developed in partnership with the University of Toulouse — Jean Jaurès, aims to train musicians having attained a high level of mastery of their instrument and also possessing proven theoretical musical knowledge.
This two year cursus will allow the student to broach works from various musical periods and styles on the richly diverse Toulouse heritage organs, and to undertake historical and aesthetic research at the same time, notably aiming to inspire their interpretation and performance.
The Master is a 2nd cycle tertiary degree inscribed in the national repertoire of professional certifications at level I (Bac+5) awarded by the University of Toulouse — Jean Jaurès. This qualification is recognised within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). It prepares for a career as a performing organist and the pursuit of doctoral-level studies.
The “performance” programme is designed for students who have studied towards a Diplôme National Supérieur Professionnel de Musicien or equivalent (Bachelor of Performance) and who have a high level of excellence.
