Overview

During this programme, you can prepare your entrance to the professional music world: learn repertoire useful for competitions or auditions, give two recitals during regular concert seasons, and deepen your understanding of musical interpretation through artistic research.

You can choose among three specialisations:

- Soloist

- Chamber Music (for already formed ensembles)

- Contemporary Music

Each student or chamber music ensemble receives: 

  • 1,5 h lesson/week by the chosen teacher 
  • a minimum of 2 master classes with renowned musicians 
  • guidance in designing and developing a research project relevant to your own artistic practice. Our institution guarantees each student or ensemble: - one recital during a regular concert seasons - a demo recording - support for finding a second recital within a regular concert season

The research component of this programme is strongly connected to your artistic practice. We do not intend to make a performer-musicologist out of you but, rather, an artist whose practice is grounded in convincing artistic research. In order to achieve this goal, you will be assisted by a research tutor. The research tutor will consider your proficiency, artistic goals and interests in order to design a research programme meeting your needs. The research tutors are artists with experience in artistic research. In certain cases, your instrumental mentor may also be your research tutor.
