Study description

In 2010, the VMI became the first institute to introduce its own study for compositional pedagogy. The study combines creative/compositional areas with pedagogical competences and following 8 semesters of study ends with a state-approved qualification as a composition educator. The emphasis lies in the artistic and pedagogical areas and leads to an advanced level of education to enable the student to teach at music conservatories, academies and universities, etc. Alongside weekly private instruction in composition and the practical implementation of learned techniques within composer ensembles, various theoretical, practical and pedagogical supplementary subjects are included to guarantee a comprehensive education.
