After completing master's studies in Jazz/Improvisation, you have the knowledge to be able to work as a jazz musician, either as a soloist or a member of a permanent ensemble.

The Performance Programme, Jazz/Improvisation, aims to train musicians that possess excellent artistic and professional qualities.

On completion of the programme, the student must have adequate knowledge and skill to be able to comfortably work within the various functions and engagements of the professional musician: either as a soloist, a member of an established ensemble or in independent projects.

The student must also have developed the skills necessary for continued or in-depth studies that are to a great degree autonomous. Furthermore, on completion of the programme, the student must have acquired basic entrepreneurial skills that increase his/her professional versatility in an ever-changing cultural life.

The programme consists of compulsory and optional courses. The academic year is divided into weeks of scheduled classes, project weeks and weeks for independent studies as well as examination and assignment weeks.

Teaching takes place either individually or in group form. Instrumental instruction consists of classes in the primary instrument of study, lectures common to all students, seminars and individual interpretation classes.

Once the programme is successfully completed, students are awarded a degree of Master in Music.
