During the training the strengths and the talent of the student will be promoted, the weaknesses will be discovered and overwritten with new habits. The love of music in combination with the transfer of professional knowledge and technical skills are the first priority. The training at the Dresden College of Music is characterised by openness and a practice-oriented training strategy in the pedagogical and artistic sense. Every student is thus optimally prepared for professional life.
The focus of the study programme is the development of an artistic personality with all its creative potential, who confidently meets the requirements of the current music business. The basis for this is the comprehensive technical and musical training and promotion of creativity and independence.
By getting to know different styles from the beginnings of jazz to contemporary jazz, rock and pop music, the main subject training covers a broad musical spectrum.
The main subjects are sound, time, phrasing, articulation, theory of melody, harmonics, intonation, stylistics, improvisation, motives, solo construction and technique. The training of skills in arranging, composing and transcribing also play an important role.
The training spectrum is rounded off by offers such as performance, different ensembles and musical projects, work in a recording studio and insights into the areas of booking/promotion/copyright.
