The Master’s programme in Music, Composition, is meant for students who want to become a composer with an orientation towards Western contemporary art music. The programme aims to train future composers with a high artistic and professional ability, and focuses on aesthetic discussions, your personal style in music, your development as well as your profile and independent position as a composer.
The main goal is to provide incisive tools for the comprehensive analysis of the complex sound reality around us and to create a set of skills that might, in the wider sense, elaborate personal artistic solutions. No pre-set aesthetics are imposed. Instead, the emphasis is on good knowledge of the important historical steps that have led the musical language to where it is now. Studies are not theoretical, but deeply rooted in composing.
After completing the programme you shall be prepared to work creatively and professionally in the ever-changing cultural life that surrounds us.
