What will you learn
While doing this master’s programme, you’ll grow into a professional musician with a strong identity. You’ll examine what that means for you, and what appropriate competences you want to develop. You’ll be the ‘master’ of your own learning path, during and even after the master’s programme, in your development as a professional musician.
Off to work!
After completing the degree programme, you’ll be a professional musician with your own identity. You’ll have a Master of Music degree, and can put the letters MMus after your name. With this degree you can do all sorts of things: as a vocalist, instrumentalist, composer, producer, sound designer or music technology expert. It’s up to you!
You’ll take main-subject courses and do research, and you’ll do an internship. With coaching from your study coach and main-subject teacher, you’ll write an overarching study plan that fits with your own ambitions. This plan will result in a package of courses, research proposal and a plan for a practical project. In addition to your study plan, you’ll write a job-application cover letter and get feedback from your study coach. At a point further along in your studies, you’ll add a reflection and some concrete goals that make it clear what you’re going to do to prepare yourself for the professional field.
You can take courses within all of HKU Utrechts Conservatorium, like ensemble playing, stage presentation, Music, Art & Culture and Learning Strategies. You can also take courses at other HKU schools (such as HKU Art and Economics, and HKU Music and Technology) or even at another educational institution.
The class consists out of students from all over the world. Spoken language is English.
