Professional Diploma for Musical Performing Artists

CLASSIC TO CONTEMPORARY / EARLY MUSIC

The course 'Contemporary Classic' and 'Early Music' relies on the strength of the two Conservatories (CRR) of Paris and Boulogne-Billancourt for technical education, and the University of Paris - Sorbonne Paris IV for theoretical teaching of general Musicology.

The DNSPM section revolves around individual and group lessons mainly focused on instrumental or high level vocal practice, in addition to the disciplines related to the knowledge of the work environment (workshops, training courses, conducting sessions). Some university courses are held at PSPBB such as the courses Physical and Mental Practices (PMC) and English for professional usage.

The training and workshops of “professional environment” courses are validated in the 3rd year but are followed throughout the 6 semesters.

Classic to contemporary :

musique Classique

 

 

 

Early Music :

musique ancienne

The course 'Early Music' offers specific training to young instrumentalists and singers who wish to improve their knowledge of renaissance, baroque and pre-classical repertories.


Credits are awarded every semester based on the results of a continual grade assessment, with a public recital before a jury during semesters 2, 3, 4 and 6, and after co-validation of grades with the university. Class attendance is considered in overall evaluation.

The PSPBB's partners include the Orchestre de Paris, the Philharmonie de Paris – Cité de la Musique, the Chamber Orchestra of Paris, the Fondation Royaumont, the Baroque Music Centre of Versailles, the Concert Spiritual, or the Fenice.
