The constitutional article 67A, adopted by the people on September 23, 2012, lays out that: «Within the limits of their respective competences, the Confederation and the cantons commit themselves promoting at the school a musical teaching of quality». The object of this article is to analyze starting from two cases of Musical academies:
– The speech on quality in itself,
– The nature of the devices planned for the formation of a minority of pupils «with high potential».
It is starting from the observation of the regulations (Sensevy & Mercier, 2007) and multiple interactions resulting from the various courses suggested in these courses reinforced that the study will analyze the processes leading to a specific musical performativity, even with a particular quality of teaching.
