Taller de Músics offers the Bachelor Degree in Music consisting of 240 ECTS credits, within the speciality of Music Pedagogy in two itineraries: Jazz Itinerary and Modern Music Itinerary. The Bachelor Degree in Music has, for all purposes, the same validity as an undergraduate degree issued by a university.
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.
Access to higher artistic education requires the fulfilment of certain academic requirements and the passing of a specific entrance test which is carried out within a suitable timeframe to allow the subsequent management of the admissions procedure prior to the start of the academic year. The specific entrance exams are used to assess the students’ level of attainment of the skills and competences required to gain access to higher education.
