in association with the SMAC (contemporary music scenes) of the Occitania region, Music’Halle – l’École des Musiques Vivaces and the Université Toulouse – Jean Jaurès
organisation of studies
The contemporary amplified music course has been updated and now includes instrumental technique, interpretation, composition, and improvisation. The field of contemporary music is extremely vast, which is why there are no stylistic limits on the course provided by the isdaT.
5 Training Areas
- Instrumental Technique
- Polyvalence: deciphering, arrangement, composition, improvisation, studio, written and oral expression
- Individual singularity, alone and within a group
These essential areas require regular and thorough training to reach the point of autonomy and improved self-expression.
Guest professors complete the training in the framework of internships and workshops on specific aspects, notably including:
- posture and injury prevention for musicians
- mental preparation of performances
- stage presence and public speaking
- ancient and contemporary music
- analysis of movement
- employment law, copyright law and status of performance musicians
- devising art projects as part of cultural events and festivals (Siestes Électroniques, Passe ton Bach d’Abord, Toulouse les Orgues, Jazz in Marciac, Octopus network of contemporary music, Music’Halle, etc.).
Whatever course is chosen, various teaching methods are provided:
- individual classes,
- collective classes,
- workshops with the dance unit and the fine arts department,
- internships and external projects (concerts/public proposals).
The teaching staff comprises the isdaT team in close collaboration with Music’Halle and Toulouse Jean Jaurès University.
Coordinating professor: David Haudrechy.
