MA Music Performance

In the Master’s course in Music Performance, students achieve artistic maturity with their instrument or voice. Their objective is to become professional musicians.


The heart of the course is formed by instrument or voice training. Students build up a demanding repertoire and are able to understand works in their context and interpret them or, in the case of jazz, to rework them. They develop a high degree of musical flexibility and can put ideas into practice independently. Through numerous performances, students broaden their range of personal experiences and their professional network.


In the Master of Arts in Music Performance/ Conducting Wind Instruments / Brass Band Conducting the students reach artistic maturity. The goal is no less than to conduct high-class wind ensembles, orchestras and bands nationally and internationally. Graduates have the artistic abilities, technical skills and pedagogic competencies needed for this.
