It studies the originality, complexity and distinctiveness of traditional music substantiating on them an original pedagogical music training system. The undergraduate curriculum of TLPM is an original kind of curriculum. It proposes a musicological training focused on Greek musical tradition, where a significant part is reserved in the practice of instrumental-use. Simultaneously, it attempts a universal vision of the musical phenomenon in space and time, as part of an overall social function. The training incorporates music practice workshops (cultivation of the expertise around a laic instrument in the workshop of music skills and with a selection of typically grouped “families” of instruments, visit to their elementary techniques in the context of the workshop of instrumental knowledge, setting of Musical Ensembles based in a musicological perspective), and instrument construction, which can be an alternative to the workshop of music skills.
