About

Our professors have extensive careers in disciplines and genres ranging from classical music to music theater, jazz, music production, and popular music. Through their expertise, they are in an ideal position to guide you in your further artistic development.

As a student, you receive a two-year personal budget that you can use to design your own curriculum. Your personal budget may be used for taking lessons with professors at Fontys as well as with external professors and artists. This allows you to take lessons with multiple inspiring artists who are leaders in their field and can help you take the next step in your career.

The Master of Music at Fontys University of Applied Sciences is a joint degree programme by the Fontys Conservatory in Tilburg (Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts, FKH) and the Maastricht Academy of Music (Zuyd University of Applied Sciences).
