Overview

As a Jazz and Pop student at ArtEZ University of the Arts you will learn a lot about music and the finer details of your instrument. As your study progresses you will have more and more freedom to decide the music style in which you will specialise. For instance, during your study you can specialise in the area of jazz: bebop, fusion, improvisation; or pop: rock, soul, hip-hop, dance. You may rather focus on a specific style, such as Latin, modern creative jazz or fusion. 

You can also choose to develop yourself as an all-round musician. Whatever the choice, the goal is always to develop your own musical personality within these choices.

Vision

The Jazz & Pop course in Arnhem focuses on artistically distinctive musicians. As a student, you will learn a lot about music and the finesses of your instrument.
