BACHELOR DEGREE OF MUSIC IN PERFORMANCE

The departments of the specialization in Music Performance include some of music's best-known professionals from the Canary Islands. Many of our teachers are doctorate degree holders and active performers, giving our teaching an innovative momentum, combined with research work closely synchronized with academic institutions of higher education in the European Area.

Our teachers use a flexible and creative methodology aimed at developing student skills and studies both as soloists as well as members of chamber music groups, orchestras, bands, choirs, early music groups, big band and jazz combos. In addition, at CSMC you will receive classes taught by internationally renowned guest lecturers, and you can take part in different festivals celebrated in our region. Another key aspect of the Instrumental and Vocal Departments is instrumental pedagogy, in conjunction with CSMC's Pedagogy Department.
