Bachelor of Arts in Music
The Bachelor of Arts in Music course takes three years. Students who have passed the admission exam take a joint course in general music training which includes teaching of solfège, harmony, music analysis or other classes such as body workshops. This basic training is completed by large and small ensemble modules and specific modules for each speciality: major instruments and historical instruments, singing and historical singing, composition, orchestral conducting, choral conducting, and music and musicology in partnership with the University of Geneva’s Musicology Unit.
The Bachelor of Arts degree awarded by the HEM is a broad-spectrum qualification and is required in order to take a Master of Arts degree, which offers specialisation and professional qualification.
