MASTER IN MUSIC PEDAGOGY

The Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy prepares students for careers in teaching music, within music schools, conservatoires up to the Music university level, or in public schools up to the secondary II level. This study pathway constitutes an essential element of the musician's professional portfolio.

The study plan gives prominence to the training in the main discipline (as a performer or creator). The specific training in general pedagogy and didactics is complemented by practical training in teaching situations.

The two years of study lead to a master project built around three axes: artistic (recital, creation), pedagogical and reflexive.
