We are a professional learning community challenging talented musicians to develop into competent and socially involved professionals. As creative makers, they are able to develop innovative concepts and transform them into artistic, meaningful musical products and services. This is how our learning community connects with, and enriches people and society. The Master of Music educates engaged, first class musicians with different cultural and musical backgrounds.
The Classical Music programme from Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen is aimed at ambitious and curious students, playing at a high level, who are willing to work hard to become an outstanding musician. Every year you take part in projects such as the Hanze Symphony Orchestra, the string orchestra or any kind of ensemble. Internships with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, the Johan Willem Friso Royal Military Band or the National Travelling Opera are also possible.
After you graduate you can find a job as a musician in a symphonic orchestra or chamber music ensemble, in (one of Holland’s) military ensembles or in a (chamber) choir. Many musicians combine different musical activities. Some even make it to the international concert stage as a soloist. Where ever the future will bring you, we provide all the tools you need to become an independent, entrepreneurial and curious professional.
