Master’s Degree in Solo Interpretation of Spanish Music, Modern and Contemporary (MISME)

We put Spanish art and culture at the service


The Master's Degree in Solo Interpretation of Spanish Music, Modern and Contemporary (MISME) offers a complete program in Spanish music. You will discover the repertoire and performance of the most outstanding domains of Spanish music: guitar, voice, piano and violin from the 18th to the 20th century.
The high level of the master is guaranteed by two complementary sides: theory and practice. The first one is devoted to the Spanish folklore, Spanish Music History, its genres and forms. Our top-tier team of specialized teachers ensures a fully understanding of the Spanish music character, always applying theory to the performance.
Furthermore, practical seminars are organized around the main Spanish music composers and masterpieces. Icon performers of the Spanish repertoire (such as Ainhoa Arteta, Marta Zabaleta, Mayte Martín, or Pedro Mateo, among others) will share their perspective and technical solutions for each instrument. The joint attendance of singers, pianists and guitarists at these seminars will greatly expand their knowledge of Spanish music. Finally, all students will receive individual lessons with high level teachers of each field of expertise.
