Preparing for a career as a professional artist with help from renowned teaching staff

At the core of this internationally aligned, two-year Master’s programme is a practice-oriented engagement with interpretative and instrumental/vocal issues. The knowledge and abilities possessed by the students at the beginning of their studies will be consolidated with a view to a subsequent concert career. This expertise will then be expanded upon so that they reach the standard necessary for a professional qualification and for professional performance.

With respect to quality and with regard to the time to be invested in preparation and follow-up work, this Master’s programme gives the greatest weighting to the major subject.
Students will also receive extensive practical training in chamber music and ensemble playing and these are complemented by a focus on issues of interpretation and a reflective learning process (theory/analysis).

In addition to the broad range of elective subjects, students may choose to specialise in a particular subject by enrolling for elective minors.

The city of Basel and the campus in particular offer the ideal environment in which to learn, work and find inspiration.
