Study Programmes

Bachelor's degree programme

In addition to private lessons with the principal study teacher, students participate in group lessons, projects, masterclasses and clinics. There are ample opportunity to gain experience in a wide variety of ensembles.
Using their third- and fourth-year 'individual credits', students can choose to specialize in a field of their own choice. More
