We empower the moving musician to reach their own ambitions within diverse musical fields. To touch, move and excite while doing this. We bring the best out of the students through our passion for development. We believe in the strength of our community consisting of students, teachers and the professional field. Teamwork is essential, and the best education also comes from a team effort.
We offer a study programme that prepares our students for a career in the ever changing professional field. It enables students to make the most of their talents. This is achieved through one to one artistic development, active interplay, theoretical integration, professional practice experience, cross departmental activities, electives, and developing entrepreneurial and research skills. Guided by our teams, the students shape their own study path, and are guided throughout their journey becoming their version of a moving musician.
