Learning objectives:

In the final semester, the entire previous study is recapitulated, during which the student has become a masterful and distinctive performer who is aware of his/her strengths and weaknesses. The student is guided to be able to confidently name and analyse all the attributes of violin playing (principles of correct finger technique, tonal culture, etc.) from the position of a teacher, to be able to explain and independently solve possible combinations of problems that may arise in performance practice. The student is guided to understand the psychological aspects of the soloist-performer's performance. He/she acquires further knowledge in the field of interpretation of traditional and modern or non-traditional techniques and forms. Culminates in the preparation of a graduation concert and thesis.

Thematic areas:

  1. Recapitulation of the entire study
