In co-operation with the Norwegian Academy of Music, Barratt Due offers a one year further studies programme for applicants with a classical background. This programme is developed for applicants with a three year bachelor degree in music performance who wish further specialization on their principal instrument.
The programme can also function as a preparation for a future MA in Music Performance. This programme is also available for those with a four-year bachelor in music education.
The programme consists of 30 credits performance and 30 credits free choice subjects. This 1 year programme is in co-operation with the Norwegian Academy of Music, but is held at Barratt Due Institute of Music.
Music performance is at centre stage. The emphasis is on enabling the individual student to gain the broadest possible experience as a musician, focusing on developing his or her genuine “voice”. The student therefore has a wide and varied range of opportunities to give recitals and to perform as a chamber musician in ensembles. The Institute has its own vocal ensemble, a chamber orchestra and various wind ensembles, as well as the Barratt Due Symphony Orchester and Oslo Camerata.
Facing an audience is a universally important part of training, which is why giving the students practical experience of concert production plays a significant role; producing concerts for children and the elderly is a compulsory part of the education programme. Furthermore, Barratt Due considers reaching out to new audiences and exploring new arenas for classical music as an important task for the classically trained musician.
