Aptitude Test

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. In the first part of the audition, applicants perform a concert with their own ensemble for a maximum of 20 minutes. Applicants are free to select the repertoire themselves.
  2. The second part of the audition is an interview in which applicants are asked about the statement of purpose they submitted with their application. The statement of purpose is a brief essay in which applicants must describe their goals and how they will meet these goals at the HfMT – including the instructors with whom they want to study, the resources they intend to use, and the courses they plan to take, both in their main area of study as well as in other disciplines. Applicants are advised to familiarise themselves with the course catalog before writing their statements of purpose. The statement of purpose should be submitted with the application.


Students work in a customized program with the assistance of a faculty advisor. The program provides:

  • Instruction with multiple and, if requested, rotating instructors in their major
  • Various opportunities during the program to perform with the University or outside whether at concerts, using the University’s own studio/music label to produce sound recordings, or conducting University or outside ensembles
  • In close collaboration with their advisors, students can benefit from the knowledge of every faculty member. It is possible to create courses specifically for the students or to alter existing courses to meet the students’ needs, provided that the necessary department resources are available
