The Music, Organ with Related Keyboard Instruments programme of the University of Gothenburg gives you the opportunity to continue your organ studies at an advanced level, including solo repertoire, improvisation, and ensemble music. As a student, your studies will be integrated with keyboard instruments traditionally related to organ repertoire and improvisation.



The Music, Organ with Related Keyboard Instruments programme of the University of Gothenburg focuses on the organ as an instrument for solo repertoire, improvisation, and ensemble music. You will study at the Academy of Music and Drama, a unique environment with committed and competent teachers and students. Here, you will have exceptional instruments at your disposal. In addition, you will have access to the University of Gothenburg's own baroque organ in Örgryte New Church as well as other interesting organs in the Gothenburg area.

Develop your own artistic idea

Our programme offers a unique feature: as part of your application, you will present an idea that will be the basis for your master's project. This idea will be a thread through your studies, integrated with repertoire playing, organ improvisation, and studies related to keyboard instruments including the clavichord, harpsichord, fortepiano, and French harmonium. You choose what you want to immerse yourself in, based on your prior knowledge, specialization, and artistic goals.


We have strong connections to ongoing research, and if you seek further studies, our programme qualifies you to apply for doctoral programmes. Each year the programme participates in the International Organ Academy, where leading musicians and researchers from around the world gather. You will participate in individual lessons in organ interpretation and improvisation and related keyboard instruments as well as group lessons. Our master seminars focus on teaching the organ as a mirror of time. Furthermore, there are courses supporting research strategies and academic writing, where you will develop the ability to create and execute your own ideas with your own personal expression and to identify, formulate, and solve artistic and creative problems.
