Description of Master of Music


Within the Master of Music you are largely responsible for the course of your own studies.

Whether you are a specialist or a musical jack-of-all-trades, you will have to meet the high standards of professional practice. If you want to increase your chances on the labour market and broaden your musical horizon, you can enrol in the Master of Music programme after graduating from the Bachelor of Music or a similar degree programme. This will enable you to deepen your specialisation and develop into a professional and versatile musician at the highest level. You are a musical personality, capable of introspection. You can make the right choices in your ongoing musical development. As a student, you are at the centre of the Master of Music programme. You are expected to determine much of the content of your studies yourself. You are largely responsible for the course of your own Master's studies. The Master of Music 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). This degree programme is part of the Fontys and Zuyd University for the Arts alliance, a collaboration of the arts faculties of both universities of applied sciences.
