Collaboration with KMH

Music plays an important role in the communication between us human beings. KMH supports and develops the role of music in society through collaboration with our surroundings. Among other things, it takes the form of various research collaborations, concerts, events and guided tours at KMH's state-of-the-art premises.

KMH is the country's only independent music college and a hub of Sweden's music life. As a prominent center for education, research and practice in music, we are an obvious partner to work with on issues related to music.

Music is to collaborate

A strong driving force for a musician or music student is to interact with his or her audience. Music appears a rather pointless activity unless there is some kind of interaction between musicians and music listeners. This collaboration is one of the cornerstones of developing into a musician, especially for young music lovers who have chosen the path of academic education. To educate a musician is also to educate in collaborations with the surrounding community.

KMH is one of the country's largest concert organizers, which is a clear example of how central the task of collaboration is within the college. The concerts have become an important part of Stockholm's cultural offerings, and they often include collaboration with external musicians and organizations.

Collaboration adds value to all our areas of strength, it creates interest, understanding and commitment to the role of music in society. All activities within our collaboration will strengthen the reputation of both ourselves and our partners.

Internationally, our collaboration consists primarily of master's programs including the exchange of students from a large number of countries, and of participation in a number of international organizations and their conferences.

Music is a major area of research, and KMH operates partly as a single, specialized educational institution and partly in collaboration with other research institutions. We have several ongoing national and international externally funded research projects.
