Educational goal and target group of this advanced training


 The Nyckelharpa training at BURG FÜRSTENECK (Germany) and

at the Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli (Italy) should

enable the students to play the nyckelharpa on a rather high level

in concerts and / or to teach it competently or play it for their

private use depending on the personal emphasis.

 The training is mainly for professional musicians and music

pedagogues with a certain previous knowledge. Dedicated

amateurs with sufficient previous knowledge of music and playing

the nyckelharpa (or starting the nyckelharpa but playing another

instrument on advanced level) can ask for admission.


Extent of the training and organisation

One year of training consists generally of 6/7 seminar blocks of 2,5 days

each. A total cycle of studies usually takes 2 – 3 years of training. One

can only enrol minimum for one year, not for single blocks. Should a

student miss a block, the fee cannot be paid back. The lessons will take

place in a class, individual lessons in presence of the class as well as

discussion and reflection hours.



Responsible for the content of the training are Marco Ambrosini, Ditte

Andersson, Didier Francois, Annette Osann and Jule Bauer under the

auspices of Marco Ambrosini. Other teachers might be called in from

time to time.

Elements of education science

Elements of composing and arrangement

Each topic has to be covered, but in arrangement with the teachers one

intensively you deal with each topic. The topics will be filled in an

attestation form signed by the training leaders.


Extra tasks along with the seminar

 The students are required to visit and write reports about 6

lessons or concerts

– Lesson attendance with one or more instrument teachers (not

necessarily nyckelharpa); main focus on observation and

reflexion of methodology and didactics; dealing with the

material from a pedagogical point of view, the instrumental

technique and the students; personal aspects and conclusions.

– Concert attendance; main focus: analysis of location, organizer,

frame conditions, audience, programme, affection, selection of

the pieces, mood, tension, interviews with musicians and/or

organizers, personal aspects and conclusions.

– Total of 6 attendances with reports altogether

(2 concerts + 4 lessons, 3 concerts + 3 lessons or 4 concerts

+ 2 lessons possible)


 Written report about an own experience in teaching or own performance.

Individual learning stages


The nyckelharpa seminar requires each participant to practice regularly

between the seminar blocks and to work along with the lessons

contents at home with high activity. This is an important condition to




A) Attest

The institutions concerned will attest the participation in the training and

the extra tasks for each student.


B) Certificate


 Moreover after successful participation during at least two years, but

normally three years, students with a good personal and professional

qualification can possibly obtain a certificate by academy BURG

FÜRSTENECK and Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli after a

final exam.

 According to the individual learning tempo of each student and their

personal previous knowledge, academy BURG FÜRSTENECK, the

Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli and the seminar leaders

will decide whether they can do the exam or whether extra practice

or additional seminar blocks will be necessary. Students do not

automatically have a right to do the exam.

 The final exam normally will consist of a written part, a public foreplay

(playing in front of the leaders and maybe an auditorium or a concert),

a demonstration lesson and a final conversation.

 The subject of the written part will be decided on together with the

leader of the training. It should be handed in at the latest 30 days

before the date of the exam.

 The test itself might causes additional costs which will depend on

the frame conditions of the exam.
