Courses


Jazz piano major


The aim of the major subject is to develop the student’s individual musical personality to a high technical and musical level. Through exploration of different jazz styles, the tradition of jazz piano playing and working with the most important musical forms, the student’s creative potential is stimulated and encouraged to blossom. Furthermore, emphasis is laid on improving the musical skills required by the future professional jazz pianist, such as sightreading, transposition, comping etc..
In addition to working on the material for the ensembles, another set teaching element is solo playing; at the end of each semester the piano students can present their work in the ”Piano Blue Hour ” concert series.



Subsidiary piano


This subject introduces the student to the piano as an instrument for composing, arranging, learning pieces independently and accompanying pupils.
Topics include working with various harmonization styles and forms, translating different grooves on to the piano and looking at various ways of interpreting melodies. In addition, basic skills such as sightreading and transposition are practised.



Classical piano

(complementary subject)

In place of coaching, all piano majors receive classical piano training in the first two years, finishing with an intermediate examination. The lessons encompass technical exercises and works from the classical repertoire, according to the student’s level of ability and personal taste.
