Are you interested in research into musical education? Would you like to master your interpretation skills in early music?  This master's degree is the only one to offer both specialisations: research and interpretation.

Lecturers in Musicology, Education Sciences and the music academy ESMUC offer you advanced training in these areas. The specialisation in Musicology and Musical Education Research aims to provide consolidated and leading research tools and methodologies, with contents covering a diversity of aspects of historical musicology, ethnomusicology and musical education and teaching. The specialisation in Early Music is focused on providing elements for the mastering of musical techniques and interpretation; it is made up of content such as theoretica-analytical tooks and practices with historical criteria applied to the interpretation of early music, the treatment of aspects related to notation, sources, musical analysis, and the teaching of instruments.

The Master's Degree in Musicology, Musical Education and Interpretation of Early Music aims principally to equip its students to conduct research in musicology and musical education. The master's programme also includes a specialisation in interpretation that is strategically centred around the early music sector, in which the two institutions responsible for the degree (the UAB and the Higher School of Music of Catalonia) stand out for their excellence and their importance within the current European context.
