Nurturing independently-minded artist-educators

Classical Music

The aim of the Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy programme offered by the Academy of Music is to nurture and produce independently-minded artist-educators. Students learn to relate artistic and teaching practices in a meaningful and appropriate way. At the same time, the programme nurtures the students’ own musical practice and further development as an artist, while providing them with intensive hands-on educational training.

Early Music

The Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy programme offered by the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis focuses on two core areas: instrumental proficiency and historical performance practice, and practical teacher training. The programme aims to nurture and produce independently-minded artist-educators who are able to engage with Early Music in a reflective way.

The Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy with a Jazz major enables students to develop a fully-fledged independent artistic identity and hone their ability to share their jazz knowledge and expertise with passion and enthusiasm. The programme focuses on advancing the students’ instrumental/vocal and artistic development and equipping them with the skills needed to manage challenging projects and the creative process independently. Students also acquire contextual knowledge and hands-on practical teacher training that will enable them to share their jazz expertise with empathy and enthusiasm and to teach at any level.
