Being a successful musician nowadays means more than having talent and knowing your instrument: the field is constantly evolving, and old stories require new deliverance.
As an ArtEZ University of the Arts master's student in Classical Music you develop into a highly skilled, proactive and flexible musician. The two-year course is built on curating and (per)forming identity: it provides you with the know-how and tools to showcase yourself in a rapidly changing work field and society.
At the ArtEZ Conservatory, we challenge you to immerse in current developments and to construct new narratives. To collaborate within and outside your own discipline and to expand your network, looking beyond the boundaries of the familiar. Are you ready to experiment, to innovate and to further enhance your artistic practice?
As a Classical Music master graduate, you have a strong artistic and musical foundation. You know your qualities and strengths and you understand with whom and how to work together to achieve your goals. Upon graduation you are extremely aware of the context you operate in: you know how to contribute to it and how to make use of it.
Having developed a proactive, enterprising, curious, critical, and open mindset, it is natural for you to think in solutions and opportunities. You have not only developed a unique artistic signature but are creative in the widest sense of the word.
