The Medina Foundation for Music’s Educational Programme, through the Medina College of Music, aims to provide a high-quality music education leading to certification in music theory and performance which is recognized and accredited at both national and international levels to developing musicians in a supportive and nurturing environment where they can improve their technical and theoretical knowledge of music.
The courses offered by the Medina College of Music are designed with the holistic growth of the prospective musician in mind, supporting his/her development whether as a solo performer or a member of a band, ensemble or orchestra. It aims to move away from a system of rote learning but works towards nurturing an understanding of musical concepts as a means of self-expression and self-awareness, presenting a platform for a life-long journey of self-discovery.
The programme strives to empower students with the knowledge, understanding and skills that will equip them to achieve fulfilment through music in whichever direction they wish to pursue it in the future, as well as the present. It caters both for those who wish to take up music as a hobby as well as for those who intend to choose their career path in music on a professional level whether as a performer, a composer or a teacher, by laying sound foundations in knowledge, skills and competences in music theory and practice. Students are encouraged to reach their potential, become independent in their learning and develop a positive attitude towards lifelong learning.
The programme offers all students the opportunity to learn and to undertake musical experiences with an assurance of success. It is based on students’ having the confidence to achieve at a pace and level that meets their needs, which is suitably challenging, engages them in the learning process and is delivered with purpose and rigour by the teachers.
