This profile gives you professional competence for activity in symphony orchestras, opera houses, small orchestras and chamber ensembles and choirs of professional standard.

Projects in various ensemble and orchestral constellations are a substantial part of the studies.

At least half of the programme consists of obligatory studies of the main subject (main instrument or equivalent) and courses relating to the main instrument, e.g. ensemble playing at your own level or genre-deepening courses.

To these are added obligatory subsidiary subjects, such as music theory, music and society and media courses. The programme includes a 15 ECTS independent assignment in the main subject (a concert or a corresponding artistic performance together with written reflections on music in an artistic perspective).

Elective courses are also included. These can take the form of in-depth studies of the main subject or a broadening of your competence within the framework of available KMH courses. Workshops and seminars led by visiting teachers, both national and international, are organised regularly.

Studies include main instrument, ensemble singing/chamber music, music communication, early music, interpretation seminars, repertoire studies, rehearsal, symphony orchestra/string orchestra/brass ensemble/wind orchestra/chamber choir and contemporary music.

You can study the following main instruments: singing, piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, French horn, trumpet, trombone, bass trombone, tuba, percussion, harp, accordion or guitar.

For harpsichord, recorder and most Baroque instruments, see the Early Music profile.
