Specialty: Jazz and World Music

In the time of con­stant devel­op­ment of mul­ti­me­dia tech­nolo­gies and demand for new cre­ative artis­tic pro­duc­tions in the area of music, it was nec­es­sary to ini­ti­ate a new spe­cial­ty at the Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music, which would be meant for instru­ment play­ers whose field of activ­i­ty is the wide­ly under­stood jazz and world music.

In the aca­d­e­m­ic year 2017/2018, the Depart­ment of Instru­men­tal Stud­ies opened the major called Jazz and Stage Music, spe­cial­ty Jazz and World Music. The stud­ies are addressed to active per­form­ers who in their cre­ative work search for inno­va­tion in the per­formed music, con­sid­er­ing the changes it is sub­ject to. The essence of the stud­ies opened at the FCUM is a per­son­al plan cre­at­ed by stu­dents, a kind of vision includ­ing their artis­tic aims and devel­op­ment using the range of solu­tions offered by uni­ver­si­ties.

Class­es are main­ly based on projects, prac­ti­cal lessons, mas­ter­class­es with renowned artists, con­tacts with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the com­mu­ni­ty, thus they will give stu­dents an oppor­tu­ni­ty to deter­mine their artis­tic path and cre­ative search­es based on analysing and reflect­ing on their work as per­form­ers and artis­tic iden­ti­ty. Stu­dents will learn great cre­ative pre­sen­ta­tion tech­niques and skills.
