Classical instrument graduates are proficient soloists and versatile chamber and orchestra musicians. At the Helsinki Music Centre Orchestra Academy, launched in 2015, you can gain work experience and create networks with professional orchestra musicians even before graduation.
During your studies, you will become familiar with the key repertoires, styles, techniques, and interpretations of your instrument and the central Western Classical music repertoire for orchestras. You will learn how to practise your instrument in the most effective and beneficial way and how to study independently. You will also gain teaching skills during your studies. In advanced pedagogy studies, you will become familiar with teaching your instrument, from the beginner to professional level, at music schools in the Helsinki metropolitan region. You can also complete the teacher’s pedagogical studies (60 ECTS credits), which qualify you to teach music at comprehensive and upper secondary schools, and in general education.
Graduates will be able to work as intermediaries between culture and other fields. Other career opportunities include, for example, research, administrative duties, media, and entrepreneurship in music.
