It is a weekly collective 45 minutes session that all EAM music students attend in which they study some history of music covering all eras from Baroque to 20th Century, highlighting the composers and the evolution of music throughout all periods.
In addition, students get to discover the musical instruments, their families, their practical ranges, tessituras, their techniques and extended playing methods. In parallel, students sing and read Solfeggio exercises, train their musical ears and rhythmic senses by dictating melodies. EAM students also get to know the basics of western and oriental music theory and analyze modes and scales.
Since EAM’s mission was always to spread the culture and change the dark reality of our communities, this session also covers some general topics including music styles, orchestration, direction, improvisation, rhythm studies and much more.
Finally, every session contains a short practical part of flute playing as a secondary instrument for all candidates.
