ArtEZ Academy of Music

Study at ArtEZ

The ArtEZ Academy of Music is spread out over three locations, which is what makes it cosy and small-scale. There is plenty of personal attention and communication lines are short. Each location has an entirely unique atmosphere, one that’s often reflected in the music! At the same time, you will fully benefit from the facilities and opportunities of a large conservatory. 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.

Music & Health

High demands are placed on musicians on a physical and mental level. That is why we at ArtEZ pay the necessary attention to healthy music making. We mainly do this during project days and weeks. You follow a series of lessons about healthy voice use and you learn to recognize and prevent work-related complaints.
