Training the professional composers of tomorrow

At the core of the FHNW Master of Arts in Composition/Music Theory with a Composition Major is the student’s development of an independent personality as a composer. The basic skills acquired in the BA in Composition are consolidated and expanded up to a professional level.

Producing independent thinkers

The teaching offered combines knowledge transfer, reflection and project-specific work in the tuition forms appropriate in each case. By experiencing a large range of aesthetic approaches, students can develop their own point of view.

Diverse synergies arise from collaborating with the instrumental and vocal classes, the Research Department and the MA in Specialised Music Performance with a Contemporary Music minor.
