The Falun Conservatory of MusicSince the autumn of 1997, there is a supplementary folk music programme intended for folk singers, fiddlers and other string musicians (playing the guitar, mandola, mandora or lute, for example).
The programme prepares the students for college and professional life. On their principal instruments, the students will be instructed by 4 -6 of our leading folk musicians and teachers, in addition to the senior teachers at school. Visits by guest teachers are spread out over the training period as a whole. Naturally, this programme adopts a “folk music perspective” on individual training as well as on ensemble playing, theory and so on.
