BACHELOR Music and Musicology

This degree provides students with a musical curriculum associated with a historic and cultural curriculum; the theory and practice of music are made clearer through the knowledge of musical heritage. Listening techniques, learning how to write (harmony), accompaniment by sight, acoustic or computer-assisted production, introduction to singing and to the piano, as well as group activities are studied in tutored work and in practical work sessions. The history of music follows the major historic timeframes: Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, classical and romantic periods, modern and contemporary languages. Studies in ethnomusicology, jazz and current-day music contribute to and complete this panoramic programme.
