A two-semester practical programme of 83 hours. Introduces the musical history of Bohemia and Moravia in the context of the places, lives and works of important musical figures, institutions and events. It places these facts in broader historical and social relationships. The course takes 3 forms:

a) in the form of excursion practice with field teaching combined with expert explanations and educational games aimed at learning about the relevant objects (places, institutions, personalities, realities) and preparing for creative grasping of these issues in the final work of the students,

b) in the form of lectures presenting and systematizing historical and music theoretical contexts, selected musical works, affecting the leading stylistic and semantic features of selected compositions and aimed at understanding musical language as a specific means of communication characteristic of given personalities and stylistic periods,

c) through workshops focused on understanding musical language through practical musical activities based on active performance of music using elements of selected musical works and instrumental and vocal improvisation.

The course includes a final thesis - a music didactic reflection on selected topics (from places visited during the course).

Auxiliary curriculum:
