The Chair of Orchestral Music

  • improving the level of teaching of orchestral playing, and consequently better preparing students and graduates for auditions for orchestral ensembles,
  • preparing students for orchestral projects at the Academy and beyond,
  • organizing courses with outstanding orchestral musicians from Poland and abroad,
  • preparing for auditions for ensembles not only in terms of instrumental skills but also psychological competence – working with musicians, psychological coaches, courses, organizing training and meetings – psychological coaching,
  • raising funds for research, scientific and artistic activities – organization of courses, trainings and concerts,
