The second subject can be chosen from all secondary school teacher accreditation programmes offered at the University of Innsbruck and Musical Instrument Education (A2) at the Mozarteum University Salzburg’s department for Music Education in Innsbruck.

Within the scope of the A1 study programme an artistic major subject must be studied. The artistic major subject can be chosen from all instruments offered at the resp. universities in Salzburg and Innsbruck and voice.

If piano or voice, both of which are obligatory, are chosen as artistic major subject, no further artistic subject is requried.

  • Sensitivity of the musical ear
  • General music theory
  • Participation in a musical-communicative project
