Our MA in Music Performance – Jazz is aimed at musicians who are interested in developing their artistic profile and aspire to a stage career. The two-year programme offers plenty of scope for you to carry out your own projects, which will be supported and mentored by our teaching staff. Our in-house sound studio offers you the opportunity to make professional recordings. High-class ensembles with a variety of styles demand a high degree of commitment and openness from our students. You will explore unfamiliar academic fields in interdisciplinary projects.
You will study with musicians from a range of countries and must be open to challenging music projects. Thanks to the wide range of options on offer, you will be able to follow your own interests. You will not only be mentored in your core subject but in your projects too. You will gain practical experience through contact with our partners (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.
You will train to become a professional jazz musician. This not only involves honing your instrumental or vocal skills but also developing your own artistic profile and acquiring the tools that will allow you to find your place in the music world. As a musician, you will also need to be adept at self-management and communication. By the end of the programme, you will command the stage: you will be a performer.
