Master Degrees in Musicology in Barcelona Spain. Introduction The Master of Advanced Conducting is a 60 ECTS credit program designed to be completed in one year of study. This degree offers two specialisation branches: choral conducting and orchestral conducting. Both of these specialisations are professional in character and are aimed at preparing the future conductor for a wide range of situations. The program trains the student in all the different facets of the conducting profession from the choice of repertoire to the final concert presentation and all the intermediate stages of planning and organisation. The program balances broad theoretical knowledge with hands-on practical experience conducting groups in an academic context (for example in the Conducting Practice class) as well as a more professional environment (Artistic Internship class). At the end of the degree, the students will organise and conduct a joint concert for choir or symphony orchestra depending on the specialisation. Capitalising on Esmuc’s unique position as an academic reference in Barcelona, the capital of a region with a long tradition of choral and orchestral music, the student will have access to multiple professional and semi-professional groups to work with on their personal projects. One of the objectives of the program is precisely to help future conductors to project themselves professionally by taking charge of existing vocal and choral groups or founding new ones thus strengthening the ties between the professional world and the music community that surrounds it. Objectives The main objective of the Master of Advanced Conducting degree is to provide future conductors with the necessary specialised education. This is achieved by developing the following specific objectives: Train the future conductor in all the facets of the conductor’s profession in the XXIc. from the choice of a repertoire adequate for the particular group to the performance including the intermediate stages of studying, rehearsing and resource management. Provide the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to conduct choral or instrumental groups of various configurations, characteristics and proficiency levels. Expose the student to the western repertoire of both choral and orchestral music and the different aesthetic tendencies. Give the student the tools to project and develop herself professionally using traditional channels and resources as well as those particular of new technologies. Student profile The Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, as a center for specialised higher education, offers this master’s program to students holding an undergraduate degree in music. Student profiles: Undergraduates in performance or composition with some training in conducting that want to broaden their knowledge or even pursue a career in conducting. Undergraduate conducting majors that wish to professionalise themselves with highly specialised training. Undergraduates in a specific branch of conducting (i.e. choral or orchestral) that want to complete their training with another specialisation. Since the assumed knowledge of all students is that of an undergraduate degree in conducting, in the event that a candidate cannot demonstrate the necessary proficiency in a particular area or skill, the faculty can accept him/her under the condition that he/she take one or more remedial courses at the same institution. This measure is to ensure an even level among the student body.

Máster online en Pedagogía para Músicos

ESMUC Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya
Online & Campus Combined Part time 1 - 2  September 2017 Spain Barcelona

Master Degrees in Musicology in Barcelona Spain. Pedagogía Online para músicos Este máster, organizado por la Esmuc y el Instituto Canzion, está dirigido específicamente a profesionales de la formación y la docencia musical. La realidad de los profesionales de la música que se dedican a la docencia está muy bien perfilada por la literatura científica en investigación en educación musical, y coincide de forma casi invariable en cualquier parte del mundo que posea una cultura de base occidental: el músico conoce y domina muy bien su práctica como artística pero ha tenido pocas o ningunas oportunidades de formarse en competencias docentes. Como consecuencia de ello, la praxis profesional educativa del músico artista se basa sobre todo en la reelaboración individual de su aprendizaje a lo largo de los años como estudiante, con un carácter claramente de recurso único y poco flexible para abordar los retos contemporáneos del ejercicio de la docencia en contextos cambiantes propios del siglo XXI. Se plantea así la necesidad de una formación pedagógica específica para el músico experto, y que sea práctica, innovadora y basada en el conocimiento aplicado de las ciencias de la educación. Este Máster online Esmuc – CANZION en pedagogía musical busca ser una oportunidad de formación y mejora profesional para el músico que ama la música y ama la educación musical. Y busca hacerlo llegando allí donde esté el estudiante con el rigor y precisión propia de una formación superior artística pero a la vez realizando un seguimiento próximo en base a una potente tutorización personal, profesional y académica, de manera que las distancias –al obligar a utilizar los medios virtuales- acerquen más que alejen. A quién se dirige El Máster online Esmuc – CANZION en Pedagogía para músicos tiene su principal grupo de destinatarios en aquellos profesionales de la música que laboralmente dedican entre el 50 al 100% de su tiempo de trabajo remunerado a la formación y la docencia musical. El perfil del alumno del Máster está definido, entre otras, por las siguientes notas de identidad y requisitos: Tener una formación sólida como músico: al ser el Máster para músicos, los contenidos a aprender son sobre todo de tipo pedagógico y necesitarán su transferencia al campo docente musical por parte del estudiante en base a un conocimiento bien estructurado de la música, sea cual sea el tipo o estilo de música con la que desarrolle su práctica artística y formativa. Buscar la mejora de la propia praxis docente, con una actitud franca y abierta a la reflexión, crítica, transformación e innovación de la actividad que se desarrolla como formador. Es preciso ser consciente de qué aspectos de la tradición educativa recibida se han de contextualizar y adecuar al siglo XXI y que otros aspectos se han de enmarcar claramente en la historia de la educación de la música. Tener en la educación y la docencia de la música un campo de dedicación basado en el servicio a los demás, con componentes claros de desarrollo personal y de predilección vocacional. Es central para la realización con éxito de este Máster poseer una profunda implicación con la educación y hacerse cargo de las responsabilidades personales que conlleva. Plantearse la dedicación a la formación de músicos como una carrera profesional con entidad propia: es la mejor forma de dar sentido a unos estudios de Máster que requieren un importante esfuerzo personal, son un hito más dentro de la planificación general de la propia carrera profesional y, cada vez más, se exigen en las carreras profesionales docentes por casi todos los sistemas educativos internacionales. Competencias Los aprendizajes realizados en el Máster online Esmuc – CANZION conducen a la adquisición de las siguientes competencias base: Saber observar y analizar de manera fundamentada la práctica docente en el aula, propia y ajena, interpretándola en base a las corrientes y paradigmas del pensamiento político, histórico, filosófico y ético en educación musical que las enmarquen. Comprender los factores psicoeducativos que intervienen en los procesos de enseñanza –aprendizajes musicales– y gestionarlos adecuadamente y con éxito en función de los contextos y alumnos que los lleven a cabo. Diseñar, aplicar y evaluar, con rigor y en base a la adecuada detección de necesidades de los destinatarios, la acción educativa, los recursos disponibles de cualquier tipo (didácticos, legales, institucionales, sociales) y la comunicación comprensible de la propia actuación profesional docente. Conocer, dominar y aplicar las nuevas tecnologías de la información y el aprendizaje musical como recursos eficaces y eficientes centrados y al servicio de la persona que aprende. Comprender el propio rol docente como mediador del aprendizaje del alumno y saber aplicarlo, desarrollarlo y revisarlo como facilitador, soporte y orientador del progreso y autonomía del mismo. Saber gestionar y liderar la comunicación y puesta en común de la propia práctica docente entre colegas de profesión, creando vínculos y grupos de trabajo institucionales y/o de red virtual para la comprensión, mejora, crítica reflexiva e innovación de dicha práctica. Adquirir una base sólida y aplicable en fundamentos e instrumentos de investigación en educación musical que dé rigor y comunicabilidad a los procesos de cambio, innovación y mejora de la acción educativa musical que se lleva a cabo y permita la transformación de los contextos sobre los que se actúa de forma consistente. Contenido y programa La organización modular del Máster online Esmuc – CANZION se basa en las áreas que actualmente se consideran fundamentales desde las Ciencias de la Educación: Áreas de conocimientos sistemáticos o de fundamentación Áreas de conocimientos aplicados.
