The Specialization Non-Degree Program is an unaccredited artistic program without a diploma. It is intended for those who have completed a master’s degree in music in Slovenia or abroad. It is also open to exceptionally talented candidates who do not meet the abovementioned requirements.
Participants will expand their expertise in their principal study course and other elective courses, enhancing their skills and competencies to meet the rigorous demands of the international job market.
The program is planned for one semester, but it is advisable to attend for at least two consecutive semesters. The program can last up to four semesters at most.
The Specialization Non-Degree Program includes six modules:
Module One: Singing/Instrument
Module Two: Composition and Music Theory
Module Three: Conducting
Module Four: Chamber Music
Module Five: Jazz
Module Six: Piano Accompaniment
For each module, the participant has an option to select one of the following focuses:
(A) General Professional Development,
(B) Orchestral Audition Preparation, or
(C) Performance Preparation.
The program in Modules One, Four and Five concludes with a concert–either solo or in collaboration with other participants of the program–organized by the University of Ljubljana Academy of Music.
Module Two of the program concludes with a public lecture, during which the participant presents and analyses their work throughout the program.
The program in Module Three concludes with a public rehearsal with one of the orchestras or choirs of the Academy of Music, conducted by the participant.
