More about this programme

What to expect from us

We will teach you to become pioneers in the field of music. You do not only become excellent musicians who can connect to the existing music field, but we also educate you to become frontrunners who inspire and change the current state of the art. Therefore we have built AMPA on six key skills helping you to become that pioneer: instrument & ensemble playing, artistic research, entrepreneurship, interdisciplinarity, international connectedness and self-management. Our internationally renowned professors, an excellent team of mentors and a number of high-profile ensembles in residence, bring you to a higher level of artistry!

What do we expect from you

We expect talent (physical and mental), endurance, passion, curiosity and creativity. Studying music is top sport for the body and the mind! We want you to realize that you do no only become an excellent musician at AMPA, you become performers with an artist’s mentality, you become a music artist; a creative omnivore who is able to connect to other musicians in- and outside his/her safe musical domain, who is able to set up sustainable connective practices with other artists outside the musical domain and who can resiliently connect to society’s twenty-first century challenges. Then you are really ready to put your musical talent to work!
