The professional field for trained musicians, in both classical music and jazz, has changed markedly in recent years. The new challenges include globalised stylistics and the project character of public music life. Making music can take place in concerts, as a guest musician or soloist. Away from the concert stage, work can be found in cultural niches and in independent projects and programmes. Musicians often have a combination of various types of work. This applies particularly to jazz musicians, for whom there are very few institutionalised opportunities for earning money, apart from teaching.



Students graduate with a Master of Arts in Music Performance.

The Master’s degree in Music Performance is a qualification for a career as a musician. Graduates can supplement it with a Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy or continue with the advanced Master of Arts in Specialized Music Performance.
