School of Korean Traditional Arts
The School of Korean Traditional Arts is a higher education institute dedicated to nurturing experts capable of adjusting to today’s traditional music scene through academic study of traditional performing arts, with a strong focus on instruments, song and dance to maximize performance ability. The School is a place in which broad insights and fierce artistic spirit are naturally transferred to the students beyond the limitations of conventional apprentice-based art education with simple technical repetitions.
Indeed, the School is oriented around education that inherits and then reinvents the tradition based on the spirit of “learning the new by reviewing
the old” to harmonize tradition with creation. It deserves to be called its popular title of “repository for content prototypes” by initiating performing
arts in Korea and providing the prototypes for other Schools.
The School of Korean Traditional Arts is dedicated to good faith interaction with other Schools to create new performance styles. It is proud to take the initiative to create 21st-Century Korean arts education by developing collaborative projects with each School.
