  • The research practice:
    Considering the majority profile to which our offer is addressed, such as the Conservatory Graduates, our proposal provides Postgraduate training to these students who have been trained in an academic environment that has traditionally remained alien to the research practice that is specific to them. to the university environment. In its training curriculum, a lack of knowledge of methodologies for research is detected, which is corrected with the academic training of our degree in its research aspect.

    While this aspect is not among the primary objectives of this Master, the experience that has given us the implementation of the title has shown us the interest aroused among the teachers of music.
