Jazz, popular and american music in your Masters course

The Master of Jazz is a specific degree course that focuses on more contemporary music genres. You learn the typical instruments of the different genres, how they are played, and how the trend has developed. Moreover, most universities encourage you to engage in ensembles of all music genres.

Your Master of Jazz, thus, combines both theoretical teaching with practical learning of a given music genre. Subjects like jazz history, classical music, composing and interpreting will also accompany you during your Masters programme. Besides the emphasis on Jazz you will have the chance to take classes in Popular Music, Rock'n Roll and even classical music.

On average, this postgraduate course takes up to two years to completion, as the programme includes playing instruments, chanting or even dancing. All Master of Jazz are taught in postgraduate courses.

Entry requirements to a Master of Jazz

Anyone who wants to apply for a Master of Jazz needs to hold a Bachelors degree or equivalent in music or the fine arts. As this postgraduate course is not consecutive upon a precedent degree, you must not be an expert in the field. But be aware that it is common for universities to conduct full application procedures for degree programmes in the fine arts and music. You may have to go through an interview and an entry examination. This is why the application procedure takes longer and the deadlines in the music sector are earlier than it is common in natural or social sciences.
