The artistic Bachelor of Music program follows the concept of an integrated (“angewandt”) multi-dimensional qualification with a curriculum based on the analysis of modern-day music career demands. It includes artistic, practical, pedagogical and economic elements and offers career-oriented competence in traditional European music, modern music, Jazz and Pop.
The concentration in this program is on the respective major as well as the planning and performance of artistic projects. Instrumental and Vocal Majors develop their creative, technical and pedagogical abilities and expand their repertoire. Composition students define their personal artistic profile, style and practical compositional/music theory abilities. In all Majors special attention is given to modern music due to Darmstadt’s significant role as the German center for contemporary music.
