Study a bachelor's in Music in the Netherlands

The Prince Claus Conservatoire feels a strong connection to the northern part of the Netherlands. We are an internationally renowned institute with high standards regarding quality and atmosphere. Our mission is to train inspiring musicians who can make an important contribution in our society. We challenge you to share your talent and passion for music with the world around you. As a future musician or music teacher, you will move the world; by inspiring, motivating and touching people’s hearts.
Studying at the Prince Claus Conservatoire means that you will be immersed in an inspiring international environment. We are known internationally for our innovative ideas on studying music. We are convinced that having close contact with our
students is of great importance. You become part of our close community when you choose to study with us.

Your main instrument is the focal point throughout your studies. The first year is an orientation year. You attend theoretical classes, as well as main instrument classes and
learn through practical training and projects. In the second year, your knowledge and skills are broadened and deepened, in both practical and theoretical subjects. You will study the foundations of musical entrepreneurship and teaching. In the third and fourth year a lot of time is invested in didactic subjects with a focus on work placements (internal, external and project internships). You can make your own choice in elective modules that fit your interests or capabilities. You can, for example, participate in an international exchange programme. In the final year, you focus on your main instrument, leading up to a graduation concert. Playing in an ensemble or orchestra is an essential part of the curriculum. In addition to many chamber music ensembles, the conservatoire also has a percussion ensemble and a choir. Large vocal ensembles, string ensembles and wind ensembles are set up as music productions. There are plenty of opportunities to gain performing experience, through orchestras, at chamber music evenings, in solo performances or in master classes and concerts, both within as well as outside of the conservatoire. You also attend workshops and master classes given by internationally renowned musicians.
