Selection

The selection is based on 20-285 credits



Course Aim

The Master’s programme in music performance focuses on four interacting perspectives, all of which aim to put one’s own music performance in a context:

  • Interpretation
  • Analysis
  • Tradition/Innovation
  • The public interaction

During the course, the student will receive inspiration for:

  • an independent and reflective approach through interpretation of the selected repertoire
  • a stylistic awareness and artistic expressiveness
  • the development of his or her artistic voice and identity.

Contents
Individual lessons, Seminars, Master classes, Chamber music/ensemble performances.

Realization

In consultation with the student, an individual written arrangement is done of the course’s specialisation, repertoire, concerts/artistic productions, presentations and oral and/or written documentation.

In addition to the ordinary teaching, the student can also be given an opportunity to participate in Master classes with visiting lecturers.

Also refer to the study guide for the respective instrument.

The four interacting perspectives are largely addressed in joint seminars for all students in the fine arts Master’s programme.


Examination

Every teaching session constitutes an examining presentation of assigned tasks.

The examination of the course takes place in a level test (final presentation) and/or concert.

The course comprises one interim presentation and one final exam:

Interim presentation 1 = 7.5 credits
Final presentation = 15 credits

Both of the components are examined in connection with the fourth Master’s week of the autumn semester or during the exam week at the end of study period 2 or the first Master’s week of the spring semester.

The tasks presented in the respective presentation and time frame are determined by the teacher and student together based on his/her individual planning.

For the grade of Pass (Godkänd), it is expected that the student has carried out and presented the assigned tasks, all in such a way that the intended course learning outcomes can be considered to be fulfilled.

For the grade of Pass with credit (Väl godkänd), it is expected that the student has fulfilled all requirements for the grade of Pass, and in addition, demonstrated a skill and originality in the musical/artistic performance from an artistic perspective that exceeds what is required for the grade of Pass.
