Flow and termination

The average period of study to the RPJAM amounts to 4 years, the minimum study time to 3 years.

These three years are divided into two sections: “2 plus 1”. After the two first years an intermediate test takes place. Here the altogether achieved creditpoints are added and after achieving the given minimum score it´s possible to shorten the study down to 3 years.

The first two years are instrument-focused. The third year puts the emphasis on the work on own, final exam-relevant projects and the own further career.

In each year 40 (4x10) weeks instruction take place, 12 weeks are holidays. Here we depend on the Hessian vacation calendar, summer holidays occur during the 6 weeks until september 1st, so that a long-term planning with individual time management is possible.

Instruction is a mixture from group-lessons, private lessons, workshops and project-based active work.

 

For all instruments a general essential structure is intended, which is modified instrument-specifically:

  • Talent at the instrument
  • General music teachings
  • Ear training
  • Harmony teachings
  • Methodology
  • Didactics
  • Music education
  • music-business / music-law
  • Studio-technics
  • Economics

The main study starts march 1st and september 1st of each year.
