About the Programme

This programme is part of the wide range of programmes at the Academy of Music and Drama in the Artisten building, a unique interdisciplinary meeting place with a pronounced international character. As a student, you are also a part of an environment where the interaction between interpretation and reflection is an obvious aspect of your artistic training. We train musicians for all types of musical careers: different types of orchestras and ensembles, freelance musicians, etc. Your instrumental studies and chamber music have a prominent place in the programme. The programme results in a Bachelor of Fine Arts and can also be a springboard for master’s studies at the Academy of Music and Drama or other music educations. Instruction is in English.

Major (90 HE credits). Your major (main instrument) is obviously a key part of your education. Instruction is given both individually and in the form of seminars, lectures, workshops, and forums. The school also frequently hosts prominent guest conductors and musicians. If you play an orchestral instrument, you will also work with teachers in musical rehearsal, pianists, throughout your studies. Within the framework of the major, you will also take part in ensemble performances as part of a chamber orchestra, brass ensemble, percussion ensemble and the new music ensemble, all of which include regular concert performances. The new music ensemble works with 20th and 21st century repertoires in close cooperation with the composition programme at the Academy of Music and Drama.
