Amazing university with the strong focus on research and development.

Superior quality in music performance
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Since I started the program, I have participated in various music projects and concerts. I also formed a chamber music group to perform different classical compositions. In addition, I began to research the various aspects (Body mapping, ear training, analyzing scores) that affect learning music and the quality of playing. I also improved my learning Norwegian language...
