Degree Program in Classical Music Performance (Harp)

This 5.5 year program leads to a Bachelor's and a Master's degree.

We offer the chance to study harp in an international environment under the guidance of the best possible teachers.

The focus of harp studies is that the student learns to master their instrument. With this goal in mind, you will receive 90 minutes of one-on-one instruction in your main instrument per week from some of the best teachers in the field. You will gain a broad understanding of the central orchestral parts for the harp and learn to master contemporary music in collaboration with composers. You will also study chamber music, music perception, music history, pedagogy and languages, as well as minor and optional studies of your own choosing. You will prepare for a career as an orchestra musician by participating in audition training and practice auditions.

In addition to the lessons with your own teacher, you can also regularly attend master classes taught by visiting teachers. You will take part in the activities of our symphony orchestra already during your first year of studies.

You can also choose courses organised by the other two academies of the University and complete so-called joint studies that are available for all students.
