Related to the main subject modules.
This module is followed on an instrument or as a vocalist.
Depending on the student’s entrance level and personal goals, the minor classes emphasize training skills and/or musical development. There is no fixed curriculum. In each case, a class schedule will be agreed upon following consultations between the student and the teacher.
Mode(s) of instruction
Virtual classroom video conference with audio where max four students in four different locations and one instructor in another location, communicate by seeing each other, talking and listening to each other equally. The Instructor has access to a whiteboard, application sharing, desktop sharing and document sharing and may hand this privileges to any participants of the conference.
Apart from the video conference a high quality stereo audio stream is open at the same time via source connect. That way students and instructor can listen to music from any source of the group and talk about it simultaneously. Individual lessons where deemed necessary by the instructor.
To support the lessons video tutorial about the core information of the topics might be provided.
Due to more complex theoretical topics larger video conferences with more than four students will be provided. These classes have lecture character. All lectures are recorded and though available for students later on.

No ECs are awarded and there is no resit. Modules can only be absolved, and ECs awarded, after the end of the spring semester
