Specialise in early childhood music education

Studies in early childhood music education (VaMuKa) help you develop the creative and expressive skills needed in art education as well as your musical skills. The studies focus on the music education of children aged 0–8 years.

The studies include comprehensive teaching practice with groups of children of various ages. During the practical training, you get to try out and practice your own music pedagogical skills. You can observe and perform practical work at JAMK’s Musical Playschool Studio, for example.

VaMuKa combines various art subjects in different projects, such as children’s concerts and theatre or musical performances. You will learn to plan and implement goal-oriented and long-term music education work.

After graduation, you can work at music institutes, private musical playschools, community colleges, adult education centres or day care centres as a teacher.
