University of Miskolc
One of the characteristic landmarks of the inner city of Miskolc is the Palace
of Music built in 1927 which housed the City School of Music, established in
1904. The institution, which has changed its name several times, was integrated
into the University of Miskolc in 1997. At present its official name is: Bartók
Béla Institute of Music of the University of Miskolc. The development of the
music schools of Northern Hungary has created a high demand for teachers of
music. In 1963 the Miskolc Symphony Orchestra became an independent
organisation. Our institute trains the new generations of orchestra members.
These factors played a decisive role in the formation of the departments of the institute.
The following four specialisations are offered:
Piano: besides the main subject, other subjects related to this instrument are also taught (piano teaching, piano accompaniment, accompaniment by playing at sight, chamber music).
String instruments: violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar.
Wind instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, bugle, trombone, tuba, percussion instruments.
Theory of music: singing solo, main subject: musical theory-solmisation + choir leading.
Our college keeps contacts with foreign institutions, among others in Trento, Italy which is also the sister town of Miskolc. This makes it possible for our students to study at the conservatory there for some time.
It has been a practice for several years at the institute of Music to invite guest professors and artists to give one-week courses, during which the performers also give concerts. Our students participate in national competitions, usually with high success. Our pupils play an active role in the musical life of the town giving concerts as soloists or in chamber music groups in different programmes.
University of Miskolc
From 1987 to 1995 district nurses were trained at an institute affiliated to
Haynal Imre University of Health Care Studies in Miskolc. The closure of this
school caused a great shortage of experts in the town and in the region. In
recognition of this, the University of Miskolc undertook to relaunch training in
1998, with the Nyíregyháza College of the University of Debrecen providing the
academic and professional background support required. The cooperation between
the two universities and the financial support of the Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén
County Council and the Miskolc City Council made it possible to reopen the
college, which has been functioning as an institution of the University of
Miskolc since September 2001.
