For the first time in Hungary, the University of Debrecen offers a special pop music course to its students.According to Zoltán Szilvássy, the course can be attended from the next semester at the University of Debrecen. He also emphasized that in Hungary our university is the institution where most foreign students study – almost 6,000 people -, so the new pop music course will be available in English language too.
The course is organized together with the Music Studio of Kőbánya. The main goal of the university with this initiation is to train music managers and sound engineers locally in the future: they also plan to launch bachelor and master trainings in these fields.
The new pop music course is launched in the next semester with 40 students: they can choose from drums, bass guitar, guitar, singing and keyboard instrument trainings. Lecturers will come from the Music Studio of Kőbánya, however the university also plans to ask rock musicians to keep presentations to the students.
University students can sign for the new course until the 17th of January.
