Musiikkipedagogi (AMK)

Musiikkipedagogi (AMK)

Musiikkipedagogikoulutuksen tavoitteena on valmistaa soiton- / laulunopettajia tai musiikin perusteiden opettajia musiikkialan eri tehtäviin. Koulutuksesta valmistuvat ovat aloite- ja yhteistyökykyisiä, laaja-alaisesti taiteita arvostavia ja persoonallisia musiikkipedagogeja, joiden osaamisen ytimessä on vahvat musiikilliset ja pedagogiset taidot. Valmistuneet toimivat useimmiten musiikkioppilaitoksissa soiton- tai laulunopettajina tai musiikin perusteiden opettajina. Opinnot antavat myös valmiudet toimia erilaisissa muusikon tehtävissä, esimerkiksi orkesterimuusikkona, säestäjänä, kuorolaulajana tai solistina.

Musiikin ammattikorkeakouluopintoja edeltää monivuotinen musiikin opiskelu taiteen perusopetuksessa ja usein myös toisella asteella. Pääinstrumenttivalinta tehdään useimmiten vuosia ennen korkeakouluopintojen aloittamista. Valinta soiton- tai laulunopettajan ja musiikin perusteiden opettajan välillä tehdään viimeistään hakuvaiheessa.

Musiikillisen ilmaisun opinnot muodostavat pääosan tutkinnosta ja kattavat koko opiskeluajan. Niihin kuuluvat sekä opiskelijan oman pääinstrumentin sekä erilaisissa kokoonpanoissa suoritettavien yhtyesoiton ja -laulun opinnot. Viikoittaiset soitto-/laulutunnit, itsenäinen työskentely ja säännölliset arvioidut esiintymiset auttavat opiskelijaa kehittämään instrumentaalista taitoaan ja syventämään tulkinnallista näkemystään. Erilaiset yhteissoitto- ja lauluopinnot jatkuvat koko opiskeluajan.

Musiikillisen ilmaisun rinnalla kulkevat musiikkipedagogiset opinnot. Opettajuuden perusteena ovat oma musiikkisuhde, soitto-/laulutaito, persoonallisuus sekä laaja-alainen pedagoginen näkemys. Pedagogisiin opintoihin kuuluu koko opintoajan kestävät instrumenttipedagogiikkaopinnot tai musiikin perusteiden pedagogiikkaopinnot. Musiikkipedagogi (AMK) -tutkinto antaa kelpoisuuden musiikkioppilaitosten soiton- ja laulunopettajan tai musiikin perusteiden opettajan virkoihin tai toimiin. Opintoihin sisältyvät 60 op:n laajuiset pedagogiset opinnot antavat opiskelijalle yleisen opettajan kelpoisuuden.

Merkittävän lisän opintoihin tuovat lukuisat esiintymistilaisuudet. Opintojen aikana opiskelijoille tarjotaan mahdollisuuksia solistiesiintymisiin sekä musiikin koulutuksen oman orkesterin solistina että vuosittain Turun filharmonisen orkesterin kanssa yhteistyössä järjestettävässä Nuorten solistien konsertissa.

Note: The degree programme is conducted in Finnish. Therefore all the instructions for applying as well as the application form is in Finnish. For fruther information, please contact Erkki Lahesmaa .

The aim of the degree programme in music is to prepare music instructors or basic music education teachers for various careers in the field of music. Graduates from the programme will be music pedagogues who are cooperative, show initiative and personality and have extensive appreciation of arts. The core of their knowledge is formed by strong musical and pedagogical skills. Graduates most often work as instrument and vocal teachers or teachers in basic music education in music institutes. The studies also prepare for various jobs as musicians, for example, as an orchestra musician, an accompanist, a chorister or a soloist.

Music studies in the university of applied sciences are preceded by a multiyear music training in elementary training of arts and also often in secondary education. The choice of the main instrument is often made years before starting the higher education studies. The choice between an instrument and a vocal teacher and a teacher in basic music education is made at the application phase at the latest.

Studies in musical expression form the majority of the degree and continue during the entire period of studies. They contain studies covering the student’s own main instrument and various ensemble playing and chorister roles. Weekly music instrument/vocal lessons, independent working and regular graded performances help students to develop their instrumental skills and deepen their interpretative views. Various ensemble tasks and vocal courses continue throughout the entire period of studies.

Courses in music pedagogy go side by side with the musical expression. Students’ own relationship with music, instrument/vocal skills, personality and extensive pedagogic vision form the basis of the teachership. Pedagogic studies contain courses in instrument pedagogy or basic music education, which last the entire study time. The degree qualifies the student to work as an instrument and a vocal teacher or a teacher in basic music education in music institutions. The pedagogic studies of 60 ECTS credits included in the degree programme gives the student the qualification to work as a general teacher.

Added value to the studies is brought by numerous performance events. During the studies, students are offered opportunities for solo performances both as a soloist in the school’s own orchestra and annually in the Young Soloists’ Concert organized together with Turku Philharmonic Orchestra.
