General Music Teaching Program

The versatility of the degree programme

The teacher training courses cover a wide range of subjects, which together combine individual and group tuition on various instruments and voice, music theory, as well as musicology and music education. As the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln is a large institution, students are free to choose courses that consider a range of musical genres, theories and practices. The current list of courses on offer can be found in the student regulations and in the course catalogue.

Both the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes benefit from our partnership with the University of Cologne, which offers students the chance to take a second subject taught there.

Since the winter semester 2020/21, music can also be studied as a third subject (extension subject).

Instruments available as main subjects in teaching studies

All instruments taught at the University can be taken as main subjects for performance courses. Students may choose from a range of instruments, including voice, and specialise in “classical” music or jazz/rock/pop performance. For the “Music Teaching Qualification” and “Vocational College Teaching” tracks, students may also choose to focus their studies on Lied composition/improvisation/score realisation/ensemble leadership (with both vocal and instrumental options) or composition. More detailed information about the possible options is available in the Entrance Examination Regulations. Information is also available on the range of subjects and points of contact for each programme (see downloads).

Information for students in their first semester:

The university runs a programme for first semester students called "Erstsemester-Navi" that provides all the information needed to help students who are starting to prepare for their second subject and education courses.

Students can access the programme through the following link.

The translation will follow as soon as possible.
