The Master’s Degree is structured in five modules:
- Instrumental module: this is a practical-instrumental module in which a study is made of the orchestral repertoire in its most important historical manifestations and in which the individual instrumental class can be oriented towards perfecting the repertoire for competitive exams for orchestras.
- Theoretical training module: this presents the study of the history of the orchestral repertoire, and the musical analysis of said repertoire, oriented towards performance.
- Work experience module: this presents the opportunity to acquire work and artistic experience with an orchestra, temporarily taking part in its dynamics (concerts, rehearsals, tours). The work experience will be paid (1400 euros) and will include social security payments as a scholar.
- Optional module: this offers areas to widen the range of professionalising knowledge of the orchestra and which can be personalised according to the student’s interests.
- Research module: this allows the students to acquire competence appropriate to a Master’s Degree, by means of the study of different research methods and techniques, and the carrying out of a dissertation which they will defend in public.
