The Department of Keyboard Instruments works in co–operation with all the departments listed above. The Music Faculty houses a music library with sound archives, a Sound Studio for recording electroacoustic compositions and laboratories for research in acoustics and acoustics of musical instruments. The Opera Studio, Chamber Music room, Methods Center and the Contemporary Music Studio are also part of the faculty. The Institute of Music Theory was set up to support students and teachers. The Department of Languages and the Department of Physical Education form an integral part of the Music Faculty. However, these two Departments constitute an integral part of all AMU faculties – HAMU, FAMU, DAMU. The technical support and administrative departments are managed by the Managing Director of the Faculty.

At the Music Faculty, students can primarily study artistic fields of study, but also scientific ones.

Courses at the Music Faculty include, in addition to the main artistic fields, the history and literature of these fields and other artistic subjects, history of music, musical aesthetics, (aesthetics), music theory (theory of composition, composition courses, composition analysis, etc.), cultural education (the history of art and culture, philosophy), foreign languages, and physical education. Students may also take teaching courses in their chosen fields. Students are obliged to perform in public during their period of study.

The educational process is directed in particular to completing the university preparation of the all-around creative talents for the performance of artistic, pedagogical, theoretical & scientific professions in musical life. The graduate may then prove his or her worth as a performing artist, soloist, member of artistic bodies and ensembles. He or she may become a music teacher/specialist at
a high school or university level, in artistic and production spheres in public cultural institutions, in the field of radio and television, at concert agencies, music publishers etc. The Department of Dance graduates may become choreographers, teachers, or dance theorists in all areas of dance art, in the theater, in ballet and dance ensembles, in television, as critics or art directors of ballet and dance groups. The Department of Non-Verbal Theater graduates may work as writers, performers and teachers of nonverbal theater. The Department of Music Theory and History graduates may become independent researchers in music theory, teachers, or music critics. They may become music managers and directors or sound directors.

The Bachelor's Program objective is an accomplished, professional mastery of the field and its technical aspect. The objective also includes the mastery of all university principles of scholarly disciplines such as history, music theory, aesthetics and comprehensive cultural and educational disciplines prescribed by the programs. The Bachelor's program theoretical knowledge enables its graduates to exercise the principles in practical terms of artistic life. The Bachelor's program graduates of scientific fields are assumed to master the principles of scientific research methods and to employ the acquired knowledge for an independent application in pedagogical and other areas. The Bachelor's degree is the guarantee of his/her competence in an independent and active field problems orientation as well as its various disciplines. The degree also guarantees the capability to deliver the acquired knowledge and abilities in a creative way.

The Master's Program is concentrated predominantly on the major study field. The program's main objective is to secure the highest proficiency level and to integrate the knowledge within a wider and more general context. The Master's Program graduate becomes an independent creative individuality. The backbone of the study is not acquiring technical abilities; these ones are already assumed and expected. Rather, it is an opening of individual space for personal creativity and inventiveness, for free and imaginative search of one's own creative mode. The Master's Program in scientific fields is concentrated on completion of creative theoretical thought as reflected in real-life artistic experience as well as on the ability of independent scientific research of the field development.

 

Ph.D. candidates acquire the highest possible education in the field of study. Study is based on each student's individual interests, his or her distinctive scholarly orientation. Among others, it is part of the preparation for the academic, artistic, and scientific functions of the graduates at universities, academies, pedagogical or scientific institutions, etc.

 

Graduates with a Master's degree from the Music Faculty of AMU will be honoured with the title "Magistr umění" (MgA). Graduates from the Bachelor's program will be given the title "Bakalář umění" (BcA). Graduates from the Docto­ral program will be given the title "Doktor" (Ph.D.).
