MA Improvisation and World Music

 The programme is intended for those who want to enhance their practical skills as performing musicians and simultaneously reflect on and go deeper into their own artistry. This programme is for those who have a clear idea of what they want to develop. A large part of the work will be based on your own project idea. The programme requires you to work both independently and in groups and that you are interested in formulating your thoughts in writing. We expect you to take responsibility for your own development. Seminars and supervision aim to support this process.

Video: Grace and Zvezdana are students at two different music programmes. Here they talk about being a master student at the Academy of Music and Drama.

The programme encourages cross-border meetings but also presupposes a clear immersion in the project idea you have chosen (independent project). Meeting with students with diverse backgrounds creates an inspirational environment for creativity and innovation. Openness, curiosity and reflection are central concepts. In the seminars, ideas are tested in theory and practice together with your fellow students in the programme and with students from other master's degree programmes and courses.
The different subjects help develop written and oral tools with the overall goal of meeting the requirements of professional life. The programme is international and offers excellent opportunities to network with musicians of different backgrounds. It also aims to prepare you for the role of freelance musician on the international level. The programme can also be the basis for further studies at the postgraduate (third-cycle) level in music focusing on musical performance.
The course is intended for students who already have a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent. Instruction is in English. Master's programmes at the Academy of Music and Drama involve two years of full-time study at an advanced level.
