Piano within the Master's programme in orchestra playing

This part of the programme focuses on the pianist's role as a musical partner, accompanist and coach.
At the Academy of Music and Drama, a wealth of opportunities exist for working practically with instrumentalists from the programme for classical musicians and with singers from the programmes for opera and musical theatre.
There is also the opportunity of collaborating as an orchestral pianist with the orchestra belonging to the orchestra master's programme.
The practical side of the programme will be filled out by courses in playing from a score, transposing and sight-reading as well as studies of music theory.
