Join the Jazz and Pop program at the ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem. This music education leaves you artistically and stylistically free to find your own sound.


The Bachelor of Jazz and Pop in Arnhem introduces you to all styles of music in the first year. After that broad year, you are free to go your own way. You can specialise in any form of jazz, latin or pop, such as bebop, fusion, free improvisation, rock, soul, hip hop, dance, cuban or modern creative jazz. The course in Arnhem is the Academy of Music for the cheeky student who makes their own choices.

The Bachelor of Jazz and Pop at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem helps you develop your own musical personality. This is achieved not only by mastering the finer points of your instrument in a traditional way, but also by deciding for yourself what you want to play.

The course offers you the unique opportunity to collaborate with the other art courses housed in the same building in Arnhem, such as Music Theatre and Composition for Film & Theatre, but also, for example, Dance, Theatre, Fine Art, Creative Writing, Fashion and other disciplines.


At the end of the course you are ready to start your own professional practice. Your instrument is central to this, but you have the choice to do more than just make music.
