New Curriculum for Basic Education in the Arts in Vantaa Music institute

From autumn semester 2021 onwards is all education in Vantaa music institute based on a new curriculum in the arts. Teacher will guide the students in issues related to new curriculum. Successful studies may continue as before, whereas new curriculum enables the enrichment of the study path in the direction of students interests, as well. Central changes in curriculum compared to previous are:

• Student is expected to take part in planning of his or her own study path at a higher rate than before. Together with the teacher student discusses how to build his or her own study modules and quality of studies according to personal interests and goals.

• Student proceeds in the studies from one level to another. Goals are set according to students’ personal acquirements.

• As before, the studies include individual singing or instrument lessons as well as group studies. Also music perception studies (music theory) belong into every students annual studies. All these studies are included in tuition.

• The students will start music perception studies approximately at the age of ten. Before that they can participate in music skill training groups. These include Music key –groups that prepare the students to future music perception studies. Other possible groups are Finnish children´s choir Minit as well as Swedish children´s choirs Djungelkören and Äventyrskören.

• Instead of previously required exams students go through several skill levels. They include Instrumental part where student sings or plays an instrument. Instrumental part is evaluated in relation to students personal goals emphasizing students strengths.

• Numerical evaluation is abandoned. Instead, the evaluation is written or verbal qualitative assessment. Emphasis is placed on continuous evaluation within studies. The student and guardians can follow the progress as well as the evaluation of the studies in Eepos.

• Advanced studies study modules are built with students personal interests in mind. The idea is to offer student a possibility to choose modules according to his or her interests and goals. Study modules in advanced studies are: solo instrument, two instruments, group music, music theatre and music maker modules.
