Structure + Content
The programme focuses on providing one-to-one support as you mature as an artist. You will build up a broad, challenging repertoire and be able to contextualise the works. In the process, you will learn to understand, follow and transcend traditions. Numerous concerts, ensembles, projects and differing formats will help you experience the wide variety of artistic practice.
The MA involves one-to-one tuition in your core subject (instrument, voice, wind/brass conducting). You will study with numerous fellow musicians from a range of different countries and will be open to challenging music projects: from baroque to contemporary, from chamber music to orchestral, from traditional to experimental.
The range of options available (see list of minors) allows you to follow your interests and explore new areas. You will be individually mentored every step of the way. You will gain practical experience through contact with our partners worldwide (concert houses, events organisers, research institutions, etc.). Here at HKB, you can also expand your artistic horizons by exploring other fields, such as fine arts, literature, theatre or opera.
The objective of our master’s degree programme is to help you mature as an artist and to hone your individual profile. The programme will also examine how to communicate concepts, how to deliver a compelling musical performance in every context and how to establish professional networks.
