The programme focuses on providing one-to-one mentoring in your chosen instrument as you begin to specialise and excel. A great deal of emphasis is therefore placed on individual support. Career-related training from a previous MA can count towards the MA in Specialized Music Performance, which means that you can focus fully on your artistic work.
The MA in Specialized Music Performance is a top-level qualification for exceptionally talented students. The programme is designed to help you hone your profile. You will benefit from one-to-one mentoring as you head towards a career in your chosen area of music: as a soloist, in artistic research, in the field of music outreach, experimenting with contemporary music or as part of a chamber music ensemble.
You will develop a keen awareness of different contexts, preparing you for life in the demanding and highly competitive music market. You will be proficient in self-management and the use of social media and will benefit from one-to-one advice in these areas.
The master’s thesis comprises a recital, a production of your own, a research or outreach project or an orchestral concert. You will be assessed by external experts. This thesis also involves written and oral tasks.
In the specialisations, we place a great deal of emphasis on working with cooperation partners from the field.
The objective is all-round excellence in musicianship, research or musical outreach work. You will gain confidence in your field, whether as a soloist, part of a string quartet, as a music researcher or an experimental explorer of contemporary music. You will have the skills and tools you need to continue to further your career independently, to network and to take an active role in shaping the future of the music scene.
