The ArtEZ University of the Arts is a breeding ground for quirky and progressive performers. Authenticity, creativity and artistry – heightened with a touch of whimsy – are the cornerstones of the master Jazz and Pop (Arnhem).


As a professional musician, you know your stuff. Grant yourself the chance to take your practice to the next level with the two-year English language master Jazz and Pop (Arnhem). The programme challenges you to deepen your knowledge, to intensify your professional practice and to broaden your scope.

Are you ready to re-define yourself as an artist? Do you dare to experiment? Can you shape up and fine-tune your personal artistic signature, boost your creativity, or look beyond the borders of your own discipline?

With imagination, the artistic process and the art of performance serving as focus points, the open curriculum of the master is suited to bring out the best in you. It does not matter whether you want to dive deeper into the subject of improvising, to gain more confidence on stage or to get more connected to visuals and effects: you are free to create your own programme.


Nowadays, musicians mix roles and activities in their professional search for creativity and self-reliance.  The ArtEZ master Jazz & Pop in Arnhem provides space to experiment with music and urges you to broaden your horizon, in order for you to reach your full potential.

As a graduate you will proceed with your practice after two years of being inspired, leaving with invigorating perspectives and in-depth experience under your belt.
