How to apply to Jazz Musician

Published: 23 January 2020

Application in three steps

1. Apply on
2. Send portfolio and personal letter
3. Interview via Skype

The University seeks applicants who demonstrate awareness, introspection and self-sufficiency in their artistry in addition to high-level musical competence. It is thus of particular distinction if the applicant can indicate in the application a potential topic for the degree project, which is a central aspect of the programme. Since there is no set model for the degree project, it is advantageous if the applicant is particularly passionate about a specific topic and has an awareness of both the subject to be explored, as well as the goals to be achieved.

The admission test for Master of Arts in Musical Performance, Jazz Musician specialisation, consists of a personal letter (e-mail), audio portfolio, and a personal interview.

The audio portfolio, submitted along with the written introduction in the form of active links to a diverse selection of audio or audio/video examples (for example, uploaded to SoundCloud, Spotify, YouTube, Dropbox, etc.), should provide a comprehensive depiction of the applicant’s artistic profile.  It is important that each link include a detailed description of how, when, why, where; and in precisely which capacity the applicant took part in each production.

Written introduction and the audio portfolio are sent via email to before February 15th.
