Traditional Mongolian instrument Morin Khuur or horse-head fiddle is to be taught at Franz Schubert Conservatory based in Vienna, Austria.

In a recent Facebook post, Morin Khuur player at Music and Dance College of Mongolia B.Sanjaajav announced that a Morin Khuur teaching program has indeed been approved by the institute.

B.Sanjaajav proposed a 4-year Morin Khuur course to the conservatoire in September 2016 following which the governing board and corresponding division reviewed the proposal for over a month and approved with pending improvements. The due improvements were made to the Bachelor’s program and its instruction plan by B.Sanjaajav who alongside Daniela Egg, Director of the Franz Schubert Conservatoire signed a document formalizing the introduction of the course in February 2017.

“Not only can international students at the Franz Schubert Conservatoire learn how to play Mongolian Morin Khuur in Austria, they will learn about Mongolian culture and music”, wrote the enthusiastic musician. He considers the event to entail positive outlook for Mongolian tourism sector as well.

He also highlighted that this is the first time a Mongolian Morin Khuur program is introduced to a foreign conservatoire.
