Objectifs du programme

The professional music and song techniques program aims to train musicians and vocalists capable of developing in various styles of popular music. These styles mainly include 20th century music and song produced as entertainment for a mass market: rock, jazz, blues, pop, industry, ethnic, folk, world Beat, etc.

Specialization B : Performance

This specialization stream aims to train instrumentalists and popular music singers. As performers, instrumentalists and singers may work as soloists, members of an ensemble or accompanists. They must have a high level of skills in performance and sometimes in improvisation and theatrical expression. Generally musicians work on stage or in a recording studio. Occasionally they fulfill a particular function, such as providing music for a special event or participating in a television program, with or without a fixed repertoire. On other occasions, they have to produce their own show and take care of the programming. Conducting an ensemble could also be part of working in popular music as well as producing audio material.
