The teaching methodology of the Degree Programme in Music emphasises practical work and individual cultivation of professional skills based on solid theoretical knowledge. Some courses are taught on a one-to-one basis and others are group-based. The group-based methodology takes different forms: working in small groups, lecture-style teaching for large groups, and learning by performing in musical ensembles of different kinds, from trios to symphony orchestras.

Cultivating musical skills calls for long-term application on the part of the student. Teaching must therefore be arranged at regular, widely spaced intervals, in order to allow sufficient time for the independent practice necessary for the skills to develop. Studies of this nature are built up from a number of themes, each lasting several years. These studies are organised in periods of one academic year. There is also a place in the programme for topics suitable for intensive study over a short time; studies of this kind are run within single study periods. In addition, students participate in productions and projects, and undertake periods of practical training; these activities involve active engagement with working life and are an essential part of the learning process. Students also undertake project studies with a total credit value of 30 cr; these studies are incorporated into the student’s study schedule alongside other on-going studies at different times throughout the programme.
