Music Pedagogy Department

Full Professor Art. Marina Novak – Acting Head of Department

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Music Pedagogy Department, which was founded at the Academy of Music in 1951, was divided into the theoretical-pedagogical, and instrumental and vocal tracks until June 1963. The Academy Council in 1965 established a two-year study programme for teachers of music pedagogy, which was transformed into a four-year study programme of music pedagogy in 1977 which served as the foundation for the current Music Pedagogy Department.

ABOUT THE STUDY PROGRAMME

Many experts in the field of music education have graduated at the Music Pedagogy Department. Graduates find jobs in a variety of fields – primarily in education, and in cultural institutions, the media (newspapers, radio, television), publishing and production companies, and in many other organisations.

In accordance with the mission of the University of Zagreb, which encourages constant improvement in the study programmes in order to promote excellence and to motivate students in their professional development, the integrated study of Music Pedagogy at the Academy of Music in Zagreb creates a link between artistic disciplines and the process of the education of artists.

Music Pedagogy

Integrated Undergraduate and Graduate University Study Programme in Music Pedagogy is comparable with similar study programmes in other European countries, especially in Germany and Austria.

During the course of their studies students acquire basic and advanced knowledge and skills in theoretical subjects such as Solfeggio, Harmony, Polyphony, Arranging for Ensembles, Conducting, Basics of Vocal Technique, Musical Forms and Styles, History of Music, and practical disciplines such as Piano, Tamburitza, Playing from a Score and Choir. The comprehensive pedagogical module introduces students to theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of music pedagogy. Among elective courses, students can choose those that deepen or broaden their existing knowledge, as well those that develop new knowledge.

The study programme is completed after students pass all the required exams, write and present their thesis before the committee. They are free to choose any topic related to music pedagogy, dealing with any issue in any aspect of music education.

Music Pedagogy – Double Major

Students of Music Pedagogy acquire basic and advanced knowledge and skills in the field of theoretical subjects such as Solfeggio, Harmony, Polyphony, Conducting, Musical Forms and Styles, History of Music and practical disciplines such as Piano, Tamburitza, and Choir Singing. Elective subjects enable students to gain knowledge and skills of playing in a tamburitza orchestra, basic knowledge in the field of music aesthetics, and knowledge and skills related to the use of computers in music.

The study programme is completed after students pass all the required exams, write and present their thesis before the committee. They are free to choose any topic related to music pedagogy, dealing with any issue in any aspect of music education.

COMPETENCES GAINED IN THE STUDY PROGRAMME

Upon completing the Integrated Undergraduate and Graduate University Study Programme in Music Pedagogy and Music Pedagogy – Double Major, Masters of Music Pedagogy are qualified to work in primary and grammar schools, primary music schools, and, to some degree, in secondary music schools, as teachers of theoretical music subjects.

They can lead amateur choirs, orchestras and similar ensembles and engage in other appropriate musical activities. They can work in music publishing (computer notation, editing), music production and distribution, music management, and also in the media as editors, reporters or presenters. They can also work as independent artists in the field of music creation.
