Academization of an Individual in Musical Education

Varlamov Dmitriy I., Saratov state Conservatory named After L. V. Sobinov

Academization of art is based on the evolution of thinking and artistic creativity of mankind, which allows considering this process as a global one, both temporally and spatially. However, in musical educational establishments in the process of future musicians training, thinking and creativity of each student is academized separately, which allows us to talk about individual academization. In this aspect, academization is studied for the first time. The article defines characteristic features of individual academization: first, temporary duration – while the global academization lasts for centuries and millennia, the individual academization is limited by the years and decades of learning the art by the individual; secondly, as in the vast majority of cases private academization takes place in educational organizations, it is always artificial in type. At the same time, as the author’s previously published articles demonstrate, artificial academization is more often characterized by the greater number of negative trends (so-called post-academic syndrome) and is more acute (painful) than a natural academization process. This fact requires special attention of specialists to the content of music education and the choice of teaching methods.
