Course content

Course content

The Instrumental Studies and Conducting Master (Focus: Performance) (KIA) has been offered at the HfMDK since the winter semester 2012/2013, with the following profiles

  • Soloistic training (not for orchestral instruments)
  • Orchestral training

The goal of the master's program is to provide students with those competencies that enable them to independently pursue the profession of an orchestral musician or soloist.

Exploring career paths, developing competencies

Indispensable creative qualifications that are required and encouraged in the course of study are:

  • an artistic and technical development on the respective main instrument that can meet the demands of today;
  • an overview of the constantly growing repertoire;
  • the ability to create dramaturgically appealing programs; and
  • social skills that are necessary for working in an orchestra and that improve cooperation with concert organizers, conductors and the audience.
