Pedagogy of the music department
The music department at the isdaT trains artists, performers and musician teachers, by developing their singularities thanks to what the establishment offers them: a dynamic learning space, promoting transversality, with dedicated, competent supervisory teams and advice.
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.
