CAS Kernfach und Kernfach Advanced

The two CAS Kernfach and Kernfach Advanced give artistically and/or pedagogically active musicians the opportunity to work on their instrumental/vocal and musical abilities intensively over a one-year period, under the supervision of a highly qualified teacher from the Bern University of the Arts. In addition to this, they can choose an optional subject from the range of subjects available at the BUA. If previously discussed with the Head of Further Education, they can also make a request to visit additional group courses.
