About Music Division

The Division of Music at HKB with its clear areas of focus is one of the most progressive music universities in the German-speaking world. In addition to traditional areas of music education in performance and pedagogy, we also maintain a strong research programme, stylistically wide-ranging jazz training, current musical theatre, a specialization in music outreach and a lively spectrum of contemporary music.

Those who study music with us benefit from close links with the visual arts, theater, literature and transdisciplinary projects, because HKB is a comprehensive arts university. Here you will study in a contemporary atmosphere, with personal attention and a strong practical focus (e.g., festivals, CD recordings, outreach projects).
