Study activities for your major will consist of: 
• individual and group lessons
• independent study
• concerts, projects and ensemble activities
• lessons and masterclasses from your personal budget


You will perform in the following recitals and exams in order to complete work on your major:
• recital 1 at the end of the first year of the Master (30 minutes)
• final recital at the end of the second year of the Master (45 minutes)


  • Candidates living in the Netherlands/ Belgium/ Western Germany will do a live audition. Candidates from other countries will do an online audition.
  • You will be asked to submit a personal development plan, in which you outline your plans for the upcoming years of study and a CV.
  • Without a completed bachelor's degree in pop music admission can be possible, as long as you demonstrably show the level and experience equivalent to that of a graduated bachelor's student in pop music. This assessment will be based on your personal development plan, CV, musical audition, and the interview.
  • The audition lasts 20-30 minutes, where you perform with a band or ensemble. You will perform three different songs that show that you are able to:

-stylistically interpret self-composed/co-written songs or covers on a high level

-give artistic value to a song

-express a unique (personal) artistic identity

-play with a good sense for feel, groove, presentation and sound

  • After your musical performance there will be an interview with the audition committee, in
    which you will be asked about your artistic vision and your written personal
    development plan.
  • Complete the audition form carefully, including your home assignments (Demo - image and/or sound material). Once you have submitted the audition form, you will officially participate in the auditions.
