BAMusic Culture Students at Risk

More information



The EKCU Institute of Music offers a six-semester bachelor degree programme, where students study and experience a blend of Hungarian music education tradition and a 21th century approach to music education and performance practice. While becoming knowledgeable in the methods and principles of the Kodály concept, students can become members of the faculty ensembles (sing in our award-winning choir, play in chamber music formations and light music bands) and develop their vocal/instrumental skills. Also, at our Computer Music specialisation, students acquire the essential knowledge for a skilled, contemporary musicianship. We are proud of our acclaimed faculty, some of us give concerts all over the world, are prize winning composers and choir leaders, or theatre music specialists and leading music historians.
