1. Introduction

Priority area of educational policy in Russia is a complex modernization of education at all levels and stages. In this context, particular important is the formation of musical teaching corps, corresponding to the needs of modern life. Trained professionals are called to be the bearers of ideas updates based on conservation and enhancement of the best traditions of Russian musical teacher education. Requirements for the level of education of the music teacher are high enough: the future professional should have a certain amount of knowledge, skills, possess a synthesis of common cultural, professional and specialized competencies to carry out professional self-education and personal growth, to design further educational path and professional career.

The problem of self-identity is the subject of study of various fields of science. In particular, the psychological basis of self-education are studied (Zimniayia, 2001; Rubinstein, 2002); philosophical and methodological aspects of self-education in its relation to self-discipline and self-development are discussed (Andreev, 2005; Osipov & Prygin 2012). Pedagogical science revealed the essence of self-education students, methods and forms of its development (Buriak, 2007; Morozova, 2010; Georgii-Hemming & Westvall, 2010; Stalhammar, 2006); summarizes the ways of forming pupil need in self-education (Borisov, 2009; Yudenko, 2007; Honig, 2006); studied some aspects of self-education of university students (Ganin, 2004; Glukhova, 2010); the problems of development of pedagogical self-education are discussed (Ganchenko, 2004); the problems of self-education of students are considered (Oparin, 2002; Preobrajenskayia, 2008; Fominf, 2007).

Problems of development and improvement of musical and pedagogical self-education with the specific of art didactics are reflected in scientific works (Abdullin et al., 2002; Shkolyar et al., 2001). Works (Aliev et al., 2001; Fungal, 2010; Wright, 2008; Oliveira, 2005; Powell, 2014) devoted to the formation of professional culture of the music teacher.

Despite the fact that the problem of self-education is the focus of modern pedagogy, a special study on a culture of self-education of the future music teacher in the course of development of the conducting and choral disciplines, has not yet been carried out. In this context, the relevance of the development of the mechanisms of formation of pedagogical culture of self-education of the future music teacher by means of conducting and choral disciplines in higher education system is not in doubt.
