12 development projects are launched
Hence, it is important that the students know how to practise.Two project groups are now launching 12 development projects. These are directly connected to the teaching of main instrument at NAM, meaning that the experiences are gained in close collaboration with the students.
Main instrument teaching
One of the project groups are looking at Main Instrument Teaching. Six teachers from NAM are participating: professor Svein Bjørkøy, associate professor Mona Julsrud and associate professor Kristin Kjølberg – all teaching vocal – along with professor Jens Harald Bratlie (piano), professor Morten Carlsen (viola) and professor Julius Pranevicius (French horn). Project manager is professor Ingrid Maria Hanken.
Teaching of practising
The other project group is looking at Teaching of practising. Six teachers from NAM are participating: associate professor Jorunn Marie Bratlie (piano), professor Morten Carlsen (viola), professor Peter Herresthal (violin), assistant professor Matz Pettersen (oboe), professor Isabelle Perrin (harp), og professor Julius Pranevicius (French horn). Together with their students they are investigating physical and mental aspects of practising. Project manager is professor emeritus Harald Jørgensen.
The goal of both the projects is to reveal ways of teaching that might be included in the regular study activities.
