PHILOSOPHY, OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE

The above programmes are designed to produce skillful, versatile and experienced musicians, emphasis being placed on performance and competent musicianship. The theoretical and practical courses serve to explain and complement one another, thus preparing the graduates and diplomats to appreciate, analyse, practise and communicate African and world music as performance as well as literary art.
The last two years of the degree programmes introduce areas of professional specialization in Composition, Performance, Ethnomusicology, Music Education, and Music Instrument Technology according to skills and aptitudes in order to consolidate, extend and develop the basic knowledge and skills acquired in earlier year(s). Required ancillary/elective courses ensure an overall balance of the programmes.
