Lab­o­ra­to­ries being part of the Chair:

The Chair of Music Edu­ca­tion is both a didac­tic and a research estab­lish­ment. It is in charge of the fol­low­ing cours­es: school music, rhyth­mics and bal­let ped­a­gogy, Unit of Edu­ca­tion­al Meth­ods.

Its main focus of research is the prob­lem of the musi­cian func­tion­ing in the role of teacher in chang­ing real­i­ty, i.e., the musi­cian who teach­es in var­i­ous insti­tu­tions: music schools, com­pre­hen­sive schools, par­al­lel edu­ca­tion estab­lish­ments, estab­lish­ments for chil­dren requir­ing spe­cial care etc.

Reflec­tion is based on the broad def­i­n­i­tion of music edu­ca­tion where music edu­ca­tion is under­stood as the har­mo­nious com­bi­na­tion of music teach­ing and the devel­op­ment of the whole per­son. For this rea­son much of the work which is con­duct­ed at the Chair is inter­dis­ci­pli­nary.

The fol­low­ing major research prob­lems have been pur­sued:
— music edu­ca­tion in the con­text of basic val­ues. One of the most impor­tant sub-themes with­in this prob­lem is the for­ma­tion of the music edu­ca­tor as a music spe­cial­ist and as a per­son. The first pub­li­ca­tion in the cycle “the Musi­cian as Edu­ca­tor” has now appeared. It dis­cuss­es the prob­lem of the respon­si­bil­i­ty of the edu­ca­tor and is a col­lec­tion of mate­r­i­al from two sci­en­tif­ic sem­i­nars
— music edu­ca­tion in the con­text of Pol­ish tra­di­tion. Research cov­ers such areas as folk­lore in edu­ca­tion, the biogra­phies of music edu­ca­tors of great mer­it, the his­to­ry of select­ed music edu­ca­tion estab­lish­ments
— music edu­ca­tion in the con­text of the ongo­ing changes in gen­er­al edu­ca­tion and the mod­el of Pol­ish school­ing
— music edu­ca­tion — select­ed the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal prob­lems. Research is cur­rent­ly being done on the train­ing of teach­ers in music acad­e­mies and the pro­fes­sion­al iden­ti­ty of stu­dents. Work has been pub­lished on the activ­i­ties of music edu­ca­tion depart­ments in Pol­ish music acad­e­mies. The func­tions of music in spe­cial edu­ca­tion are also being stud­ied.

The Chair is also doing unique research on bal­let teach­ers. A review of all master’s dis­ser­ta­tions on this sub­ject has now been pub­lished. Sev­er­al works by bal­let teach­ers have also been pub­lished.
