Lower tuition fee for first-year students
If it is the first time you are enrolling in a bachelor's degree programme, then you may be eligible to pay only half of the statutory tuition fees for the first year when you are an EU-citizen.
There are courses in conducting (choral, ensemble, wind/brass band and orchestral), music theory, and composition. Within vocal studies, there is a strong focus on opera. There are masterclasses, (orchestra) projects, operas, trainee placements etc.
Composing, arranging, making original music is an important part of the programme. Making music together – is at the core of the programme. The international teaching staff will encourage you to be creative and imaginative, and inspire you to develop your own style. This is achieved through regular lessons, as well as special theme days, workshops, projects, and masterclasses during which students explore a particular style, a musician or band, a rhythm or a concept.

We will turn you into a creative, professional and versatile musician. A musician who can put his or her own unique and artistic personality on the market with great flair. A musician who will eventually make a career for him- or herself as an inspiring player, band leader, composer, arranger, teacher, producer, organiser and/or manager, on a national and international level. Music as a profession is a tough option: it takes more than talent or the gift of playing an instrument. It also requires skills such as curiosity, an active inquiring attitude and an artistic and social personality. We focus on excelling together – this makes studying at Conservatorium Maastricht the right choice for many young, ambitious musicians.
We do not make music for ourselves. We make it for you, our audience. That is why we regularly play in the city and surrounding area, hold jam sessions in various cafés, play Lazy Sunday Concerts or take our productions to nursing homes and schools. We also give public performances at our home base. If you choose to study at Conservatorium Maastricht you'll be joining the best connected conservatoire in Europe.
