The Unit of Harp, Gui­tar and Per­cus­sion com­bines edu­ca­tion­al, artis­tic and schol­ar­ly activ­i­ty of ped­a­gogues of these three spe­cial­ties. The name of this unit, accept­ed by the Sen­ate in June 2009, offi­cial­ly became a part of the Depart­ment of Instru­men­tal Stud­ies on 1st Octo­ber 2009. It is head­ed by Marcin Zalews­ki, Pro­fes­sor at the FCUM. In pre­vi­ous years it con­sist­ed of two units – Unit of Harp and Gui­tar, which for many years was run by Pro­fes­sor Urszu­la Mazurek, and Unit of Per­cus­sion, run by Pro­fes­sor Edward Iwic­ki since 1984.

The Unit organ­is­es its didac­tic work, super­vis­es it so that it is car­ried out cor­rect­ly and the right lev­el is main­tained with­in all areas of orches­tra, solo and cham­ber music, as well as at intra­mur­al and PhD stud­ies and Post­grad­u­ate Artis­tic Train­ing; it also pre­pares cur­ric­u­la for low­er-lev­el music schools.

As part of its wide­ly under­stood activ­i­ty, the Unit car­ries out var­i­ous organ­i­sa­tion­al under­tak­ings: music work­shops with out­stand­ing artists and com­posers, pro­mo­tion­al con­certs for above-aver­age stu­dents, con­certs exchanged with oth­er uni­ver­si­ties, and con­certs per­formed by lec­tur­ers and stu­dents of the FCUM. It is in per­ma­nent con­tact with many ped­a­gogues from uni­ver­si­ties in Poland and abroad, as well as with the Per­cus­sive Arts Soci­ety from the USA.

Ped­a­gogues of the Unit give con­certs, are jury mem­bers at music com­pe­ti­tions in Poland and abroad, par­tic­i­pate in schol­ar­ly ses­sions, organ­ise sem­i­nars, mas­ter cours­es, music work­shops and con­certs.
