Music Education in Innsbruck

In 1981 the Mozarteum Academy set up a department in Innsbruck where the Music Education study course (now: teaching subject in teacher training course) has been offered right from the start, and, since 1986, Teaching a Musical Instrument. In 2006 the study course Teaching a Musical Instrument / Teaching Singing was set up in cooperation with the Tyrol Regional Conservatory as a Mozarteum study course. About 200 students are at present enrolled in the Department of Music Education – Innsbruck, following courses in musical educational theory. Renowned teaching staff convey a balanced artistic, pedagogical and academic training at a high university level. The entrance examination as required by the university law to prove the candidate’s artistic suitability also ensures the essential standard of the entrance prerequisites. Graduates of the study courses are for the most part active as teachers in higher educational institutes and in music educational professions at music schools. They are also engaged in the regional and national cultural and education scene as practising musicians, choir directors, conductors and in church music. In 2018 it is planned to move into the Haus der Musik in the centre of Innsbruck. Besides providing appropriate rooms for teaching and practising in keeping with modern requirements, this opens up new perspectives of cooperation with partner institutions in music education.
