Basic Program

The Basic Program is the one- to two-year preparatory program for the Main Program of the International Music College Freiburg. Young music talent not yet able to qualify for the Main Program, but exhibiting a certain minimal niveau, receive the chance to be specifically trained and supported in working on the fundamentals necessary to pass the audition for the Main Program.

The curriculum of the Basic Program is practically-oriented.
Intensive band work, practical groove, jam, sight reading and rhythm training, as well as individual lessons on the main instrument are emphasized. Moreover, the program is rounded off and completed by the extremely important subject music theory/ear training and a series of selected mandatory theory workshops.

The study year in the Basic Program ends with the audition for the Main Program. If this is passed, the student qualifies for the Main Program. If it is not passed, the Basic Program can be repeated for another year. In this case, the course load is somewhat varied and reduced, with the study fees being correspondently lower. Another possibility, also in this case, would be to prepare further for the Main Program as a part-time student.
