The master in organ studies, developed in partnership with the University of Toulouse — Jean Jaurès is aimed at organists with a solid instrumental training and motivated to develop their autonomy and creativity in an organ practice open to all artistic and aesthetic fields.
This 2-year course aims to deepen the knowledge of the organ repertoire on the rich organ heritage of the city, to allow a polyvalent practice of keyboards, to make the student aware of the stakes of the public in partnership with Toulouse les Orgues festival, and to develop personal projects in connection with other artists.
The Master is a 2nd cycle tertiary degree inscribed in the national repertoire of professional certifications at level 7 (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.
