Bachelor Degree in Music Pedagogy

OBJECTIVES

The purpose of the Music Pedagogy specialisation is the training of qualified musicians who are capable of performing in the artistic field as well as being able to perform teaching tasks informed by a solid pedagogical and didactic education in any kind of educational context.

Since 1979 the Taller de Músics has provided the educational framework for most of the country’s musicians in the fields of jazz, modern music, and improvised and creative music. The methodology that has made this centre a leader in music education is also the hallmark of our graduates. During their training, students acquire theoretical knowledge of music, didactics, psychology and educational management, which is consolidated through practice and formative assessment based on real learning contexts. The experience acquired allows them to go on to train future teachers with a consolidated professional competence based on pioneering active pedagogies, collaborative interdisciplinary projects, mastery of new technologies applied to teaching, and critical reflection on teaching and the learning process in general.

Taller de Músics’s commitment to innovation in music education places internships and research at the centre of the curriculum for this specialisation. The synergies and collaborations established with the Taller de Músics music schools, municipal and private music schools, primary and secondary schools, conservatories, national and international colleges, prominent cultural entities, associations and projects from the school’s social area establish the ideal setting for the professional development and employment of our students.

STUDENT PROFILE

Syllabus

The syllabus of the Bachelor of Music consists of 4 academic courses of 60 ECTS credits each, distributed across subjects of different categories:

  • Basic training subjects: These are subjects of culture, thought, history, language and techniques of music.
  • Compulsory specialisation subjects: They are subjects of instrument or voice, complementary instrumental training, ensemble music, improvisation, composition, pedagogy,  production and management.
  • Optional subjects: They complement the training with a range of different subjects.
  • Final project (TFG).

The assignment of credits for each subject includes the hours corresponding to the teaching classes, hours of study, work, practices, projects and the preparation of exams and assessment tests.

FINAL PROJECT (TFG)

In order to obtain the Degree in Higher Music Arts Education, it is necessary to prepare and publicly defend a final project, a direct consequence of what has been learnt. It is piece of writing containing a set of explanations, theories, ideas and reasoning on a specific theme and is put into practice in the form of a concert/performance.

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

In order to obtain the ESEM degree, there are two forms of transmission to be undertaken:

  1. Festival Talent: a concert/performance. What is conveyed should be consistent with the findings of the study. It should be a professional concert and it should aim to be a full show. It should be kept in mind that the ESEM wants to promote the TFG works commercially as shows.
    The Festival Talent has been created to promote and the projects of new musical talents to the public. It is a way of bringing the classroom to the Barcelona show circuit and showcasing emerging new artists. The new graduating classes of the Taller de Músics School of Music will display everything they have learned over the last few years to the public. A five-day festival with music, nerves, emotion, excitement, enthusiasm and, above all, talent!
  2. Written paper/Oral defence. This is a paper generated from research into a particular topic. In the oral defence the student presents and defends their work. The ESEM may publish it as a reference for future work. It must transmit that the student has carried out an exhaustive study of their proposal. Monitoring and tutoring in the preparation of the TFG is carried out by teaching staff who are experts in quantitative, qualitative and mixed research. The tutor accompanies and advises the student throughout the writing process, providing constant feedback on the key aspects of the written work.

Career opportunities

At the end of their studies in the Pedagogy specialisation, future teachers will be able to carry out their teaching work in centres and institutions linked to the promotion and management of musical activities in a wide variety of contexts. In addition, other professional opportunities in this training will allow them to:

  • To provide musical and pedagogical advice to resource centres, cultural and educational centres, auditoriums, theatres and publishing and recording companies.
  • To lead and dynamise performance groups in the field of jazz and modern music through group pedagogy.
  • Collaborate with institutions and research projects in the field of music education.
