YA! Vocational Education Training

YA! Vocational Education and Training offers two different degree programmes in culture in Jakobstad.

Musician
he programme leads to a basic degree in music. The students are prepared for working lives as professional musicians and will have general eligibility to higher education. Cooperation with the local upper secondary school, Jakobstads gymnasium, means that students can also choose to take the so-called combi exam: a combination of vocational degree and matriculation examination. We will help you develop your musical profile and come closer to your goals. Our skilled and committed teachers will offer a stimulating and creative environment.

As a musician you will be able to work with different forms of music, in various choir, orchestra or other musical ensemble projects, with your own group or as a theatre, television or studio musician. Training as a musician also provides an excellent basis for further studies e.g. at universities and universities of applied sciences.
