Programme in brief
The Academy of Music and Performing Arts (AMPA) is an ambitious, innovative conservatory program that emphasizes high-quality performance, chamber music, and creativity. The Academy brings students to a high level of excellence while connecting music with other art forms such as dance, theatre and fine arts. Our core programme components are artistic excellence, an international environment, intensive work with ensembles in residence, and interdisciplinary opportunities. We educate students to become leaders in their field and play important roles in the development of new visions on the music profession.
Fontys AMPA is part of Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts (FHK), which has 15 arts programmes (bachelor and master) under one roof. AMPA offers a 4 years Bachelor of Music programme. It is an internationally oriented study to educate students to the highest level of their capabilities as artists. To this end we open the doors of our beautiful FHK building; we cooperate intensively with experts in music, ensembles and the other arts programmes within FHK. AMPA is supported by a platform of Dutch and international ensembles in residence
