Master: Instrumental Studies (Focus: Teaching)
The aim of the master's degree program is to provide students with the competencies that enable them to independently practice the profession of an instrumental pedagogue - freelance or at a music school, vocational school or academy.
The study program is either in an artistic-pedagogical or in a pedagogical-scientific profile. The choice of profile is made after the second semester.
Performing arts and didactics

Further artistic and technical development on the respective main subject instrument, a comprehensive overview of learning fields and teaching methods as well as competencies in scientific thinking and working are indispensable skills that are demanded and promoted in the study program.
