The studies are addressed to musically talented candidates who have a secondary school-leaving examination certificate and want to continue their music education and develop instrument playing skills.  When taking tests for the freshmen year candidates should have instrument playing skills at the secondary music school level (but a diploma of completion of such a school is not necessary) and a general knowledge of music. Upon completion of these studies graduates are qualified instrumentalist musicians: soloists and chamber musicians. They parallelly complete a Pedagogic Course, thanks to which they are prepared to teach at primary music schools.
