The educational project of the Liceu Conservatory starts from the premise that a true music training can only be acquired through the close and deep knowledge of music literature and the way its performance is developed. At the Bachelor’s Degree, the focus of the future musicians will be the several projects of performance and creativity developed in conditions every time closer to the professional practice.
The teaching task of the Center gets channeled through different Departments, with the aim to give the students complete training in their specialization.
All the students have a main course of specialization, whose (instrument or composition) teacher is the tutor during all his/her studies. The tutor, in coordination with the related Department, will watch over that the student is always accompanied and guided in his/her years at the Liceu.
The Teachers are experts in several fields of performance, composition, and pedagogy. They also combine the regular lessons with the ambitiouse Masterclasses program, with visiting teachers.
Thus, the courses directly linked to the artistic practice represent a great percentage of all credits. This way, the students can dedicate their efforts mainly to reach the highest professionalism and practical experience in their field.
Our main concepts are:
A personalized tutorship
To guarantee the right monitoring of the educational process, the teacher of the student’s main instrument is also his/her tutor. This way, the Center ensures that the student permanently receives the continuous artistic and educational orientation. Always in coordination with the heads of the different Departments, the tutor will watch over for the good development of his/her students’ studies. The tutor will take care of them individually, guiding their academic training to the most suitable fields of their interest and ability.
An eminently practical training
A rigorous work in the instrument training will be the most important point. The guidance of the students, by highly qualified teachers and by a supplementary program of courses –either theoretical as well as practical–, guarantees their training in all the fields. The music overall has a major importance: a program coordinated by the related Heads of Department in close collaboration with the teachers of different specializations will allow the students to work in different instrumental and vocal ensembles (orchestra, mixed groups, vocal groups, combos, big bands, etc.) under the guidance of experienced teachers. It also will allow them learning a wide and diversified repertoire in styles and language.
Mobility and international networking
The Liceu Conservatory has established a lot of international agreements with music centers of Higher Education and other cultural organizations from Europe, Asia, and America to give the future musicians the possibility of having access to student exchange programs and direct knowledge of the music activity all around the world.
The study program of the Liceu Conservatory gets adapted to the necessities of each student to reach the integral training. At the same time, it is training oriented to the adequate specialization of his/her abilities and artistic training. The student, according to his/her unique profile, can choose a versatile and multidisciplinary educational program that will allow him/her to get several career opportunities.
A commitment to job placement
When he/she finishes his/her studies, the future music professional already has a wide professional experience on the stage and in the several fields of the music practice. The auditions, the Liceu Conservatory season at the Auditorium, the collaboration with other concert halls, producers and festivals, etc. help this objective to become real.
