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, three compulsory subjects (chamber music, orchestra, and correpetition) and several elective subjects. A priority subject must be chosen. The master’s examination consists of two parts. In the first part students have to perform a piece of music to be chosen freely from the examination programme defined by the examining committee. In the second part students have to perform, under concert conditions, a programme that they have arranged themselves. The examination programme stipulates that students have to perform forty-five minutes in the first part of the examination and fifty minutes in the second part. As of the third semester at the latest attendance is compulsory in the artistic group lessons “KUG Orchestra”. Depending on the students’ capability they are recommended to take part in the KUG Orchestra as of in the second or even the first semester.
