Learning methods and activities

Principal instrument: individual instruction with satisfactory participation in compulsory instruction. To be able to take the final exam, the student must attend a minimum of 80% of the lectures.

Because of overlap due to comparable learning goals, students can only register once for the individual levels of instruction within the Department of Music’s principal instrument courses.

Improvisation: individual instruction with satisfactory participation in compulsory instruction. To be able to take the final exam, the student must attend a minimum of 80% of the lectures.

Compulsory assignments

  • Satisfactory participation in instuction - principal instrument
  • Satisfactory participation in instuction - improvisation

Further on evaluation

The improvisation part of the course ends with a presentation in a group in the last practice lesson. The principal instrument part of the course ends with a practical exam, with exam time being approximately 10 minutes. If the student fails to attend principal instrument lectures after the department's appointment of a principal instrument teacher, the student will lose the right to take the final examination.

If the course is not passed, the student must retake the full assessment.
