Department of musical education

About the department

      Musical art is an important means of moral, cultural and spiritual education. Therefore, great attention is paid to the art of music and its development in all periods and societies. Regarding this delicate educational setting of music, at the Faculty of Primary Education at the State Pedagogical Institute (now University) in 1962, the Department of Musical education  was opened. The main purpose of the department was to train skilled music teachers for general education schools in our region and neighboring regions, as well as identify talented singers and discover them in art. The young specialist Toshpulot Tursunov was appointed as the head of the department.

     In the early days the experienced teachers, folk music singers Toura Jurayev, Bojijon Ashurov, Mubinjon Azimov, Davron Karimov, Valentina Dashich, Nina Smirnova, Istat Holova, Lidia Presnyakovas, were invited. Fayzulla Toraev, who graduated from the Tashkent State Conservatory with the direction of Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan also started working here.

    With the efforts of the rector of the institute J.Namozov and Dean of the faculty K. Khairullaev, the problem of human resources was gradually resolved at the department. Mahmudjon Rakhmatov, a graduate student of Ahtam Koshshayev in 1966, graduated from Sanokul Dustov, later Saida Muhammedova, Sattor Murodov and Tashkent State Conservatory, and talented teacher Mustafa Bafoyev (now well-known Uzbek writer) , as well as Bolta Kushshayev, Toshpoat Turobov and others.

     During this period the educational work and the quality of the lessons were improved. The position of the music department, which has been fully staffed, has been quite high in the institute and region. In 1970 musical department was opened at the faculty. Due to the improvement of the educational process and expansion of educational and educational work in the music department, the music and pedagogical specialty of the department was reorganized in 1973 under the chairs of  "Music and singing", "Theory of music and national musical instruments" and  “Chorus conducting  and singing ". Experienced teachers Toshpulot Tursunov and Mahmudjon Rahmatov are the leaders of these departments.

     At the same time with the educational process, the Music Department has developed a great deal of spiritual and educational work. At the institute a creative amateur team of 60 students is created. The department was organized by National singer of Uzbekistan Moshe Bobokhonov, master of seniors Sunnat Naimov, Bukhara folklore masters Arif Atoyev and Hikmat Ne'matov. As a result, the Bukhara Pedagogical Institute's amateur team participated in the republican musical contest “Welcome talents", "The singers", "Doyra makes everybody  dance" and at contests devoted to famous poets Alisher Navoi and Hamid Olimjon`s anniversary. She has been acknowledged as one of the most respected artistic groups in the region and the republic.

       The independent musical and pedagogical faculty was founded in 1977 as a music department, and a prominent scientist, Oxunjon Safarov was appointed as a director. Since that time the music department has grown into a new stage of development.

     The head of the team, Oxunjon Safarov, graduated from the faculty of Music and Pedagogy of Tashkent Pedagogical Institutions named after Nizami, in order to strengthen the material and technical base of the faculty and to provide qualified specialists to the departments, all classrooms, concert hall, as well as the educational building. Niyoz Ashurov, Fayzullo Abdullaev, Davron Ruziev, Samad Tohtamishev, Bakhtiyar Mustafoev, Ashraf Gafurov, Munira Istatova, Mardon Dustov, Omon Jalilov, Salomat Abdiyeva, Ollobergan Karimov, Toshpo`lat Ramazonov, Tamara Rajabova, Sukhrob Gafurov, Zebo Rakhimova increased their workforce capacity.

      O.Safarov set a solid working discipline in the music and pedagogical faculty, gained the high quality of the educational work, and  most importantly, resounded the research work at the faculty. At that time, no one was in science at the Faculty. With the invitation and consultations of Oxunjon Safarov, a number of experienced teachers have confirmed their work and started to do so. The first teacher Toshpulat Tursunov defended his Ph.D. dissertation in Kiyev in 1982. Then the musical-pedagogical faculty was headed by a talented pedagogue and talented specialist Sanakhul Dustov from 1979 to 1984.

    When Mels Mahmudov, became a dean of the faculty, a new era of music began. Besides strengthening the material-technical base of the faculty of music faculty, he has managed to establish a strong discipline in teaching staff and students, and to improve the quality of the educational work. The young professionals, who have been encouraged to use science, have created enormous opportunities.

       From the very first years of independence, in order to develop national music and integrate it into the youth consciousness, the Department of Musical education founded a new "Traditional Music" department, where a well-known musician, a folk singer and composer, Rasulov was appointed as the head. Ari Babakhanov, Arif Atoyev, Hikmat Ne'matov, Rakhmatilla Inoyatov, Shady Sharipov, Tolib Temirov, Obid Temirov and Shokir Sharipov were invited to work. The teachers of higher education, Ahmad Bakhriyev and Said Saidiy, also started to work in this chair. Later, the Department of Traditional Music was headed by Associate Professor Faizulla To`raev in 2000-2006.

       Prof. M.Mahmudov, the head of the faculty, worked in this direction for a long time to develop the creative potential of the music department and successfully defend the research. With the spiritual support of the teachers, who assisted in the selection of the subjects and the selection of scientific scholars, there were dozens of candidates of science. Students of music pedagogy and methodology, such as B.Mustafoyev, Z.Rahimova, A.Bakhriyev, B.Madrimov, successfully supported scientific works one after the other.

Prof. M.H. Mahmudov contributed to the creation of research on Bukhara music culture and history, musical and musical heritage.

In conclusion, we want to say that more than 1500 students have been awarded a diploma of musical-aesthetic educator for half a century of music. Сoaches are rightly proud of their former students as People's Artist of Uzbekistan and Karakalpakstan Akhmadjon Shukurov, Honored Artist of the Republic, Composer Arif Atoyev, Turkmen Artist Imomkul Yulliev, Honored Worker of Culture of Uzbekistan Kodirqul Joakulov, former faculty members of the faculty, such as Fazliddin Bronov, Professor Fazliddin Byronov, Professor Olimjon Fayziev, Candidates of Science, Associate Professors Bahtiyer Mustafoev, Zebo Rakhimova, Bahrom Madrimov, Osmon Inoyatov, Usmon Jabborov, Sharif Sharipov, Shukhrat Tillaev, Feruza Asadova, Kamol Hayrullaev, Ismat Shamsiddinov, Shamsiddin Rayhonov, Toshpo`lat Tursunov, Mahmudjon Rakhmatov, Fayzullo Toraev, and other.

In 2006 the department was united and transferred to the faculty of art graphics.  In 2011 the Department of "Applied Art" was united and "Art" department was renamed.
