Programme objectives

The programme’s objective is for the student to further enhance his or her singing technique developed at a conservatory, to master his or her vocal hygiene and endurance, to cultivate each student’s individual musical expression, to construct a repertoire corresponding to the student’s vocal field, to work on portraying a stage character and to acquire practical experience in preparing vocal concerts, operatic performances and productions. The student develops healthy physiological and psychological habits associated with practicing music and publicly performing it. Through his or her own interpretation of solo, chamber and orchestral vocal music, the student is familiarised with a wide range of interpretative approaches and vocal techniques associated with various types of repertoires.

Profile of a programme graduate

The graduate has mastered an extensive repertoire and is equipped with theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience enabling an independent and stylistically appropriate interpretive conception of musical works. He or she is well-oriented in the techniques of portraying characters. The graduate understands the field in the broader contexts of the art of music and in art generally, is familiar with the field’s history and present, and applies this knowledge in his or her own artistic activity. He or she is able to reflect theoretically on the field. The graduate has the technical proficiency and interpretive maturity necessary to master a demanding, extensive and stylistically diverse repertoire, which will enable him or her to enter a music profession or a continuing Master’s programme.

Rules and requirements for creating study plans

General information about admission process

An admissions proceeding consisting of two rounds has been organised for the Bachelor’s programme of study in Voice. Each round will take place in person.

Round 1: A computer-based test on the history of music and other music-theoretical disciplines

The applicant shall answer a set of randomly selected questions with three possible answers, of which one is correct. If the applicant fails to achieve the set minimum score for advancement to Round 2, then the admissions proceeding shall be concluded. If the applicant advances to Round 2, then the points from Round 1 shall not be counted.

Round 2: An aptitude test

The precise requirements of the aptitude tests are published for each academic year, and consist of a designation of required compositions, of compositions selected by the applicant, and of whether these compositions must be sung from memory, etc. These requirements are updated each year and posted in the relevant parts of the Studies section on the faculty website, and thus they are also available to prospective HAMU applicants.

The aptitude test shall take place in person before the examination committee. The applicant shall perform the set programme. The examination committee has the right to designate which of the required compositions the applicant shall perform. The examination committee has the right to interrupt individual compositions at any time.

The admissions committee shall assess the applicant with a comprehensive score, which includes evaluations of aptitude and singing dispositions, especially technical mastery, physiological aptitudes for healthy voice development, auditory imaginativeness, memory dispositions, stage dispositions and individual interpretive contribution.

After the completion of Round 2, the admissions committee shall rank individual applicants according to their average scores and shall recommend for admission those applicants who ranked within the admissions target and who earned the minimum score for the Bachelor’s programme in Voice.

The requirements of the admissions proceeding, including a designation of the method by which points are awarded, their range and the admissions target, are defined for each academic year by a relevant Decree of the Dean, which is subject to approval by the academic senate of the faculty.

If not enough applicants receive the required number of points, the admissions target will not be met.
