Diplôme National Supérieur Professionnel du Musicien

The Diplôme National Supérieur Professionnel du Musicien (equivalent to a Bachelor of music) (DNSPM) offers high-level training as an artist-performer which prepares students for careers as a soloist, conductor or professional ensemble musician.

This training emphasises practical lessons, professional scenarios and internships in close collaboration with renowned institutions such as the Orchestre National du Capitole, the Théâtre du Capitole, the Toulouse Chamber Orchestra, etc.

The DNSPM is an undergraduate diploma registered in the national repertory of professional certifications at level 6 (Bac + 3). It is backed by a degree in music in partnership with the Université Toulouse — Jean Jaurès and allows for the pursuit of master’s studies.

Timetables

Gap year

The isdaT allows its students to benefit from a so-called “gap” period. This period allows the student to temporarily and voluntarily suspend their studies in order to acquire personal or professional experience, either independently or supervised in a host organisation in France or abroad.

The gap can take 4 forms:

  • training in a different field from the original field at the time of registration,
  • experience in a professional environment,
  • civic service commitment,
  • project to create an activity as a student entrepreneur.

The gap period lasts for one year and always coincides with the start of the school year. It concerns students regularly registered at isdaT, during their studies. It is available at the end of the 1st year or between the 2nd and the 3rd year, subject to obtaining 60 annual credits.
