Our renowned teachers help you to reach your desired top level. In addition there are plenty opportunities for collaboration with the other departments: from pop to world music, from dance to circus. This provides you with the inspiration and incentives to go your own way.

You can benefit from our excellent connections in the world of music. Each year you gain more and more stage experience. You develop yourself into a ‘performer-plus’: you not only know how to deliver a strong performance, but you are also capable of transferring knowledge, doing research and managing your own business.
