With over 800 students and 250 lecturers, the ArtEZ Academy of Music is one of the largest conservatories in the Netherlands.

These include the significant number of master classes from national and international guest lecturers, and playing in a band or orchestra in collaboration with students from other locations.

The ArtEZ Academy of Music pays a great deal of attention to health as part of its music programmes. After all, professional musicians are like top-class sportspeople in a way. They, too, are subject to great physical and psychological demands, which can lead to complaints and injuries.
The ArtEZ Academy of Music collaborates with a wide range of conservatories within and outside the European Union, such as: the Rimski-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory, the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, Musikhochschule Münster, the Department of Music at the University of Leeds, the Hangzhou Normal University in China and the music academies of Brno (Czech Republic), Wroclaw (Poland), Barcelona (Spain) and Riga (Latvia). These collaborations are focused on joint projects and festivals, but also the exchange of lecturers and students and the quality of the music education itself.
With an Erasmus grant from the European Union’s Lifelong Learning programme, students receive support to study at an international conservatory. There are Erasmus partners in Finland, France, Germany, Latvia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, etc.
