The courses at the Conservatoire are based on a 'concentric' model. At the heart of the programme are the courses which focus on the student's main discipline: instrument lessons, voice lessons, drama lessons and all other courses which are the "principle disciplines" which candidates have been preparing for many years, and which are their main reason for coming to the Conservatoire. In the 'first circle' surrounding the core subjects, students take courses which are directly related to their primary discipline, and which support them in their practice of that main discipline: for example, courses focusing on "musical education" in its broadest sense, physical and vocal training for actors, etc. In a 'second circle' are the courses which are designed to help students understand the historical contexts which shaped the musical or theatrical languages which are at the heart of their studies. These courses aim to give students the tools to better understand the world which they will enter when they finish studying, thereby making for the smoothest possible transition into professional life. It goes without saying that there is plenty of interaction and numerous links made between the courses, and thus this presentation of a model of 'concentric circles' is simply an indication of our school's teaching philosophy.
