Study a Master's in Music in the Netherlands

The Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire of Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, is an innovative master’s programme for students who are talented, passionate and socially engaged. The Prince Claus Conservatoire is internationally known as an innovative institute of high quality with an extensive regional and international network.

Your professional practice as a musician is central to our programme. By integrating performance, entrepreneurship and research, the programme prepares you for the profession at the highest level and to respond to the challenges and opportunities in society at large. Several study routes are available to you: Classical Music, New York Jazz, New Audiences & Innovative Practice (NAIP).

Your professional practice as an artist is our main focus, and that can be realised through our integrated learning system. An expert team of teachers/coaches will provide supervision and assessment throughout your study. Under our guidance you manage your personal study route, as worked out in your study plan.
The curriculum is built around the three main courses: Performance, Practice-based Research and Entrepreneurship. These three courses together form your principle study, which is called Professional Practice. The development of your own professional practice will be the basis of your study within these courses. For Classical Music, New York Jazz and New Audiences & Innovative Practice there are specific subjects. In addition, we offer Open Modules, which allow you to shape or broaden your principle study. These may be classes within your study route, classes from other study routes, projects of your own design, or extramural activities. Furthermore, there is a mentoring programme to guide you in the practical and philosophical aspects of reflecting on the progress and direction of your principle study.
