Jazz & Pop

In the Master Jazz & Pop in Zwolle, we guide you in developing your own artistic signature. The course boosts your creativity and helps you to set yourself apart and make an impact on the musical work field and beyond.

Artistic vision

It is important for musicians to have perfect control over their instrument, but to promote oneself in the professional world might count for even more. In this fast-changing world, we need to be flexible, proactive, and creative. In this Master, you will not only refine your technical and musical skills, but also shape your artistic ideas. Our Performance Lab gives you the opportunity to be on stage frequently and we ask you to communicate with different types of audiences.

Working together and creation

This course supports the development and realisation of your own artistic concepts. Contact and collaboration with Master students of other disciplines is a crucial part of the course. In this Master, you enlarge your network, by meeting, for instance, programmers and marketeers for different venues.

Follow your own path

Space for developing your artistic identity and examine your interests is crucial in the Master's course. You choose electives and subjects to fit your own path – even from other Master's courses in Enschede and Arnhem. For example, would Concepting & Imagineering be of interest to you? Or Curating? Of course, you will be coached by renowned professors and guest professors. You end your Master with a Masterproof, in which the ideas you developed come together.

This two-year Master will provide you with a sound foundation for creating your own place in the world of professional music. After graduation you are in possession of the internationally recognised Master of Music (MMus).

The Master's course Jazz & Pop is also available in Arnhem.
