Jazz/Pop instrumental/vocal

Personality development as a study.

The master's program for the instrumental subjects (incl. voice) is offered as a two-year specialization program. For the selected students, it continues the idea of increasing individualization, which was already established in the bachelor's program.

If you have any questions about the study program, please contact the responsible contact person(s).

Admission requirements

  • Proof of successful completion of a Bachelor's degree
  • Applicants who have not graduated from a German-speaking institution must prove that they have sufficient German language skills (min. level A2 according to the European Framework of Reference).
  • Successfully passed aptitude test

Suitability

The aptitude test takes place upon invitation and on the basis of the evaluation of the application documents.
The aptitude test consists of two parts:

  1. The first part of this examination is a concert of max. 20 minutes in length with the candidate's own ensemble. The choice of concert repertoire is up to the applicants.
  2. The second part of the practical aptitude test is a colloquium. This colloquium is based on a written outline of an idea for the master's program. In this outline, applicants should state which educational goals are to be achieved during the course of study and specifically which of HfMT's teaching offerings and resources they would like to use in achieving these goals (in addition to the topic of main subject teaching, additional subjects from HfMT Cologne's course offerings should also be considered; reading the course catalog is recommended). The outline must be submitted with the application documents.

 

Master's students work, supervised by a mentor from among the teaching staff, in a study environment tailored to their individual needs. We offer, among other things:

  • Classes with several - if necessary also changing - main subject teachers
  • A wide range of opportunities to make your artistic presence felt both within the university and externally during your studies, be it through concerts, use of the university's own studio/label for record productions, or the direction of university and other ensembles.
  • To benefit from the expertise of all those teaching in the department, in close consultation with the tutor*. There is the possibility of creating needed courses specifically for Master's students or tailoring existing courses to meet their needs, as departmental resources permit.
