In order to be invited for the audition the candidates must possess (at the latest before the Master program starts) a Bachelor of Music degree or demonstrate an equivalent level of skills for all required competences. The auditions will take place between May and July and possibly also in September.
Candidates who are judged positively during the first round of admissions will be invited to take part in an entrance examination at the Prins Claus Conservatorium. The entrance examination consists of a live audition and an interview with the admissions commission. The fee for taking part in the entrance examinations is 25 Euros, this can be paid in cash on the day of the audition.
The Master candidate can choose his or her own repertoire, as long as it consists of compositions from various style periods and the level is comparable to bachelor graduation. We need to know if you need a correpetitor or a jazz combo for your audition.
The interview with the commission will take place after the audition. Subjects for discussion will include the proposed study plan, the audition/concert and the working process with the accompanists. The commission will examine how the candidate’s wishes match with what the Masters program has to offer. In addition the candidate will be judged on whether they possess the reflective, innovative, and inquiring attitude (the master attitude) that is expected of Masters students.
Entrance examination result
After the examination process the commission will deliberate over whether or not the student should be accepted into the program. Within three weeks of exam the candidate will hear from a panel member if they have been admitted or not. This decision will also be confirmed in writing.
