Definition of the field of studies

The instrumental studies programme “Harp” provides comprehensive training and perfection in musical and interpretative capabilities as well as the technical skills to perform on the instrument harp, all of which are required for a professional musical career.


The degree programme consists of the central artistic discipline, several compulsory subjects (e.g. aural training, composition, musical forms, history of music, chamber music, choir, piano practice, coaching, orchestra, basics of academic working techniques as well as source-oriented academic working technique) and several elective subjects. A priority subject is to be chosen. As of the third semester at the latest attendance is compulsory in the artistic group lessons “Orchestra”. The bachelor exam consists of a programme that is to cover certain areas. It will be determined by the teacher of the central artistic subject which was studied last; the students, however, can also make suggestions. Forty-five minutes have to be played during the exam. Part of it must be played from memory.

Entrance examinations

An admission test must be passed. It consists of a theoretical part (aural test and music theory) and an instrumental exam.
