Course contents

Learning objectives:

The Master's Project course serves as preparation for the student's final graduate project. The project is a concert, supplemented by a recording on CD or other media, if necessary. The preparation of the project includes all organizational details such as the choice and reservation of the concert venue, its promotion, etc.

The course is taught in the form of continuous individual consultations, the student presents partial progress in the preparation of the project in class. At the end of the semester, the student demonstrates the status of the project preparation in the form of a concert.

Thematic areas:

  1. FINISHING THE PROJECT - completing the repertoire into the final form of the final concert and rehearsing it with the accompanying ensemble.
  2. Work related to the realization of the MAGISTRY CONCERT - securing the concert venue, promotion of the concert (web, Facebook, printed posters, etc.)
  3. PREPARATION OF THE SEMESTERLY CONCERT - choosing the appropriate form of presentation of the partial results of the project. This presentation will correspond to the form of the final concert, including the repertoire, with the exception of the personnel of the ensemble, which may not be identical to that of the Master's concert.
