Degree in Jazz and Modern Music Performance

OBJECTIVES

The aim of the Bachelor Degree in Interpretation of Jazz and Modern Music is to train musicians to be capable of:

  • competently interpreting different repertoires of jazz and modern music as a basis for dealing with any other modern repertoire
  • understanding, designing and organising study and practice in such a way that they can become their own teacher
  • and knowing the professional, technological, artistic and cultural environment so that they can design, create and direct their own project or integrate into the projects of others, adding value.

The design of the two itineraries offered (Jazz and Modern Music) has a very practical character thanks to the dynamic work done from by Taller de Músics, the master’s and workshop programs, along with the involvement of the Management & Productions department of the Taller de Músics in the students’ projects. The teaching staff includes pedagogical professionals specialised in Jazz and Modern Music, who are active artists at the highest level.

STUDENT PROFILE

Access to higher artistic education requires the fulfilment of certain academic preconditions of which passing a specific access test that should, taking the the subsequent management of the admission procedure into consideration, be completed enough time ahead prior to the start of the academic year. The specific access test allows to asses the students’ attainment levels of the abilities and competences necessary to be admitted to higher education.

Specialisation in Interpretation

The profile of the student who accesses studies in the specialisation of interpretation, both in the field of Jazz and Modern Music and in the field of Traditional Music and Flamenco, is that of a student who knows styles, historical periods and formations representative of these kinds of music.

The student must be able to recognise habitual forms, both additively and through a score, and should be able to locate himself, expressing himself with rhythmic and harmonic adaptation. Likewise, they must show a predisposition to build their own or personalised sound, be able to link breathing with the musical phrase and must know how to adapt the interpretation and improvisation in differentiated styles, showing technical skills concerning the instrument that allow them to reach higher studies without specific difficulties.

They must also know how to use musical notation to write and read with fluency. In addition, they must know how to build their study strategies in order to overcome challenges of an academic or practical nature. They must be able to express opinions and artistic evaluations in a respectful and coherent way, and show abilities to work both individually and in a team.

FINAL PROJECT

In order to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Music, it is necessary to prepare and publicly defend a final work, which is a direct outcome of what has been learned. This is the writing of a project with a set of explanations, theories, ideas or reasoning on a specific subject that should even more be put into practice in the form of a concert or performance key.

The student must demonstrate the ability to apply the acquired knowledge and know how to communicate conclusions, knowledge and theories on which it is based. The TFT must communicate the results or conclusions reached in the study of subject in an organised, formal, clear and precise way, as well as the methodology used, the process followed, the documents consulted etc. In short, it is a question of transmitting that is most important.

Professional skills

The graduate in Interpretation must be a highly qualified professional in musical interpretation, with mastery of his instrument and the repertoire inherent to his specialisation, knowing the technical and acoustic characteristics of his instrument and deepening its historical development, as well as that of a complementary instrument.

The graduate must perform at a high level in accordance with the specific characteristics of his/her modality and specialisation, both as a soloist and as member of an instrumental ensemble. Furthermore must he/she have the capacity to situate him/herself in multidisciplinary artistic contexts, always with a well-defined artistic personality being receptive to evolution.

They must also have knowledge of technological possibilities as a tool for the creation and support of their work. Likewise, they must be trained in the exercise of musical analysis with a wide aesthetic spectrum, and must have critical thought about the creative fact along with the capacity to transmit it orally and rigorously in writing. Finally, they must have a solid humanistic and methodological background to be able to carry out musical research and experimentation tasks.
