Welcome to Groningen! ​​​​​​​​​​​​Bachelor Classical Music When you choose for a classical music degree, you choose for a profession on your instrument or with your voice. Perhaps you will become an orchestral musician in a large symphony orchestra, or in one of the Dutch military ensembles, or member of a (semi-)professional chamber choir. Many choose for a combination between playing chamber music, instrumental teaching at a music school or setting up a private teaching practice. Occasionally a student becomes a soloist on the international stage. Performing as a musician means you are sometimes away on tour and frequently need to deliver a top performance at night and on weekends whilst others are relaxing. In every case, wherever you may later end up, at the Prince Claus Conservatoire you will be trained to become a versatile, well rounded musician of a high level. Main subjects - Vocals - Piano, organ, harpsichord* - Flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone - French horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba - Percussion, harp, guitar - Violin, viola, cello, double bass * If you study piano, clavichord or organ, you will also get lessons in the other keyboard instruments like forte piano and reed organ. Programme outline Your main instrument is the focal point throughout your studies. The first year is mainly an orientation year. Next to your main instrument classes, practical training and projects, you will be attending theoretical classes. In the second year your knowledge and skills will be broadened and deepened, in both practical and theoretical subjects. You will be studying the basis of musical entrepreneurship and teaching. In the third and fourth year a lot of time is invested in didactical subjects with a focus on work placements (internal, external and project internships). You can make your own choice in terms of optional modules, that fit your interest or capabilities. You may participate in an international exchange programme. In the final year you focus on your main instrument, leading to a graduation concert. Work placements Work placements give you a good picture of your future profession. Work placements can be taken with institutions such as the North Netherlands Orchestra, the Royal Military Band “Johan Willem Friso”, the National Travelling Opera or the Netherlands Radio Choir. You can also gain teaching experience by doing a work placement in education, at a music school or as a private music tutor. Your future career After graduation you can work as a performing musician in an ensemble, in an orchestra or as a soloist. Perhaps it is your ambition to play in a renowned symphony orchestra or in one of the Dutch professional military ensembles, or you may wish to become a member of a professional or semi-professional chamber choir. Many of our graduates combine playing (chamber music) with teaching at a music school, or they give private lessons. Some perform solo in international concerts. Whatever your future path is going to be, at the Prince Claus Conservatoire you will be trained to become a versatile musician at a high level. If you also studied for a teaching qualification, you can work at a music school or as a private teacher. Most graduates are self-employed, pursuing ‘portfolio careers’ that combine performance with teaching. [-]
