Exchange programme in the MA Music
Campus Leuven / Lemmens

DIRECTIE

In de richting Directie leer je als dirigent omgaan met koor, hafabra-ensemble of symfonisch orkest. Een stevige technische basis, een professioneel inzicht in uitvoeringspraktijk en interpretatie vormen samen met een ruim literatuuroverzicht de basis van je opleiding. Je leert pedagogisch en methodisch efficiënt repeteren, onder andere dankzij praktijkgerichte analyses van werken en uitvoeringen.

Je repeteert met verschillende ensembles. Je woont repetities bij van je coach en leraar

Curriculum

The choir, orchestra, and wind instrument conducting course consists of 120 study points.

The course trains conductors with conducting skills to work with ensembles, choirs and orchestras. Central to the training is a sound technical basis, academically supported insight into performance practices and interpretation, a wide overview of literature with localisation in libraries and publishers, a reflective component that mainly aims to stimulate practice embedded analysis and finally, an efficient pedagogical-methodical rehearsal technique.

Master programme

The master graduate project

For your master graduate project, you choose your own artistic project. You realize this work and present it to a jury of internal and external experts during a public presentation. You contextualize your work with a thesis with which you situate your work within or against existing literature and debates. This proves that you can orient yourself within the field of the chosen artistic discipline.

For your master's thesis, you can make use of technical support and productional assistance and you rely on the advice of the tutors. Nevertheless, with your master's thesis, you prove that you work to a large extent independently.

Masterclasses, symposia and intense practical experiences

Every year, the program organizes interesting masterclasses, workshops and clinics with external experts, renowned foreign instrumentalists, music therapists and pedagogues. Music practice is central to our campus. You not only make music during your practical lessons or self-study but also participate in our ensembles, choirs and orchestras and the prestigious artistic productions. These experiences transform you into a team player.

Cross overs

LUCA School of Arts is a biotope in which collaboration between students from different art disciplines is stimulated. This results in interesting crossovers and innovative artistic practices.

Seminars

Seminars are an integral part of the master's program. LUCA has a particularly rich and diversified range of research seminars fed by the research groups of our campuses from Brussels, Ghent, Genk and Leuven. Each campus has its own researchers, research traditions and disciplines. 

Together with your coordinator, you will select two seminars that match your ambitions. You can also choose from the courses given at the KU Leuven or its associated university colleges.

Staff

In een muziekopleiding is je eigen persoonlijkheid je vertrekpunt. Bij je groeiproces zijn je docenten geen leraren die werkwijzen opleggen, maar coaches die je helpen om eigen oplossingen te bedenken en je eigen verhaal te vertellen. Voor onze docenten bestaat er geen mooiere uitdaging dan je te ondersteunen en te inspireren. In het begin lopen ze vóór je, dan naast je en op het einde van je studie loop jij voorop.

Continue studying

Postgraduate Master of Music

LUCA-Campus Lemmens organises a two-year-long course of study. During this programme, you can prepare your entrance to the professional music world: learn repertoire useful for competitions or auditions, give two recitals during regular concert seasons, and deepen your understanding of musical interpretation through artistic research.

You can choose between three specialisations:
- Soloist
- Chamber Music (for already formed ensembles)
- Contemporary Music

Shortened educational master

Are you graduating as an artistic master and would you still like to become a teacher? Then you can opt for a shortened educational master's program. EDU by LUCA offers the opportunity to acquire your competencies in secondary and part-time art education at an accelerated pace. Students who take the shortened course of 60 credits sign up for a one-year full-time program. If you want to combine work and family, you can choose to spread the shortened route over two years. Edu bundles the (abbreviated) teacher training courses for secondary education offered by KU Leuven, LUCA School of Arts and VIVES.

“Wacht niet af, ga zelf op zoek naar verbindende kunsten en durf je eigen grenzen verleggen.” Het klinkt ontnuchterend als je net aan het Lemmensinstituut start, maar je krijgt eigenlijk een noodzakelijke portie levenswijsheid cadeau. Docenten geven je onmiddellijk mee dat het hard werken zal zijn. Je krijgt een grondige technische opleiding, maar dan is het aan jezelf. Durf ja zeggen, durf fouten maken, hou je visie open en durf buiten de klassieke lijnen te kleuren. Er zijn geen perfecte-paden te volgen. Maak je eigen weg."
