The report touches upon some of the problems of modern music education, which have developed in connection with the changed working conditions of higher educational institutions. After accepting the conditions of the Bologna system, new specializations appeared in some of the country's conservatories. Among them are music journalism, music management, ethnomusicology, etc. However, the reduction in the number of students who are admitted to these specialties posed a number of tasks for teachers. Today the quality of education depends on the solution of these problems. Some ways to solve them are suggested in the text of the report.
