Bachelor of Music in Pedagogy

     Music education pedagogy                    Instrumental/vocal pedagogy

The specialization in pedagogy aims to give students in-depth practical and theoretical knowledge on teaching/learning from its methodological, psychological and artistic standpoints. These studies include a number of different fields such as Early Musical Education, Music in Secondary Education, Musical Language and Pedagogy of the Instrument.

The goal of Pedagogy studies is to train teachers in the field of musical and instrumental pedagogy, and to lay a solid groundwork with educational materials and resources through songs, body language, games and dances for children and adolescents alike. The team of teachers includes specialists in the area of research, general and musical pedagogy, auditory training, voice education and instruments.

At the end of their studies, the Music Graduate in the Specialisation of Pedagogy should have the following skills:

  • Understand and explain the fundamentals of contemporary musical pedagogy, both in terms of systematic knowledge and its application, and be able to base on them the critical reflection for their own musical educational activity and that of others.

  • Acquire the technical mastering and expressive ability in performance and in the conducting of vocal and instrumental ensembles, as a basis for improvisation, creation and experimentation with their own instrument, voice and body in musical education/learning concrete situations.
  • Be able to develop, as an artist and musical trainer, a community-oriented musical educational practice.
  • Contextualise musical pedagogy in the present time and in different cultural areas, critically reflecting on the function and results that the practice of musical education may bring to personal improvement and to the improvement of society.
  • Be able to take advantage of the training and specialisation opportunities offered by each position, incorporating them into their own professional profile development.
  • Be proactively involved in music education projects through cooperative work, and assume responsibility for developing the music teaching profession as a collective task.
  • Design and carry out systematic processes of assessment for students, teachers, programs and institutions, and base planning for educational improvement on results.
  • Design, carry out and evaluate research on musical education, both individually and through proactive involvement in research teams.
