During the second academic year  an artistic thesis is presented in both musical and written form. As part of the seminars, ongoing thesis works will also be presented in words and music.   

Those parts of the education that are common to all specializations, are concentrated to approximately 9 weeks during the academic year, called master  weeks, where teachers in the program as well as guest lecturers participate, and in which all students  actively take part.

The teaching during these weeks is partly divided between first-year and second-year students, partly common to all. The common seminars deal with issues related to musical creation and interpretation.
