BA Music Jazz

Jazz musicians rewrite their texts every time they play. They improvise, interpret, arrange, compose and play in various ensembles. In the Jazz degree programme, the students acquire the basic technical skills, build up a stylistically varied repertoire, and develop an overview of the tradition, the contemporary practice and the context of jazz. A Bachelor degree in this area is a prerequisite for the professionally qualifying MA in Jazz, whether in Performance, Pedagogy or Composing & Arrangement.
