Keywords:vocational music education, institutional management, specialized music education, evolution of music schools
Currently, Romanian pre-university music education has a considerable experience accumulated over seven decades, during which it manifested its direct contribution to the evolution of the entire Romanian musical culture. An empirical research from a historical point of view, of the institutional management process from the post-war period, contributes to the outline of a general picture of Romanian vocational music education. Through this study, we want a synthetic analysis of the vocational musical educational process between 1949-1989, which represented the period of the communist regime. The content of the article chronologically approaches the main events regarding the social, demographic and educational context, starting from the first school formations of middle level music education until the revolution. At the same time, the synthetic research follows the evolution and development of the organization and functioning of the schools, the didactic process and the didactic means used from this period, all of which are synthesized in the finality of this educational process. The collaboration of music schools with the cultural environment on the one hand, and with the educational sciences, on the other hand, with pluses and minuses, secondary music education has left its mark over time, by educating and training many generations of young people with artistic potential from that period.
