Content for Composers in your Masters course

The Master of Composition deepens your skills in composing musical pieces of variable music genres. While you are talented to compose, this postgraduate course allows you to add academic experiences to your competences. You will not only expand your practical talent in playing your instrument, but gain further knowledge about the bigger composers in the last centuries. Among these are Bach, Hayden, Mozart and Beethoven.

The two-year postgraduate programme awards you with the academic title Master of Arts. You need to pass an application procedure to get accepted. Be aware that some universities distinguish between song or film composition, requiring that you choose for your own specialisation. 

Admission criteria in the Master of Composition

If you are interested in a Master of Composition, you need a Bachelors or an equivalent academic degree. It is common for art or music institutes to hold application procedures that include entry examinations, interviews, and the display of your talent in any way. Thus, we advise you in all Masters programmes of music and the fine arts to contact your university way in advance.
