Preparatory course

Study description

It includes instruction in the chosen major subject, as well as in the supplementary subjects of ensemble, harmony, and ear training. As a result, students receive preparatory training in the essential areas necessary for admission to the intended major. Because of the targeted training and preparation, students can often continue in the major program after only 1-2 semesters of preliminary study.
