Classical music is one of the three generic areas at Ingesund School of Music (MHI) and is included in most of our courses and programmes.
Classical music students have individual lessons with their main instrument teachers. The number of hours depends a bit on the course/programme followed. Students taking the Music (60 ECTS credits) programme meet their main instrument teachers for 10 hours of lessons per semester, for example, while first-year students on the Music Teacher programme meet their teachers for around 9 hours per semester. Students on the Music Teacher programme take main instrument lessons each of the 10 semesters of the programme.
Students from different years, course and programmes work and play together in different ensembles, such as the guitar orchestra, chamber choir, string orchestra, symphonic wind orchestra, symphony orchestra as well as different types of smaller chamber orchestras. Ensemble lessons can either be given a few hours each week or as concentrated projects.
Our teachers are active, renowned musicians, and they are also committed educators who are passionate about teaching. Each year, MHI is visited by a number of national and international musicians who give masterclasses and concerts. Such meetings are a source of inspiration and give valuable opportunities for development and knowledge exchange.
During the third year of the Music Teacher Programme, students have the opportunity to study abroad. We also receive exchange students who want to hone their skills with our teachers and be part of the creative artistic environment offered by Ingesund School of Music.
