In the Master Jazz and Pop at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Zwolle, we guide you in developing your own artistic signature. The course boosts your creativity and helps you to set yourself apart and make an impact on the musical work field and beyond.


This course supports the development and realisation of your own artistic concepts. Contact and collaboration with Master students of other disciplines is a crucial part of the course. 

In this Master Jazz and Pop at ArtEZ University of the Arts, you enlarge your network, by meeting, for instance, programmers and marketeers for different venues.


A Jazz & Pop musician's practice is a challenging one, irregular and divers. Professional musicians are expected to be much more than great at playing their instrument. In this fast-changing world, they need to be flexible, proactive, and creative. They need to be able to determine their own path and communicate their vision. For this reason, the Master of Music at ArtEZ supports musicians in their journey to reinvent and broaden the professional field with meaningful content.
