Definition of the field of studies

The degree programme “Bassoon” is an instrumental studies programme. Besides the main instrument the piano will be studied as a secondary instrument. The programme focuses on classical music.


The core modules of the programme are the central artistic subject, compulsory subjects, elective subjects, specialisation, and elective subjects which can be chosen freely. Students can choose a specialisation from Studio for early music, studio for new music, chamber music and accompanying music studies. An artistic master’s thesis (“lecture recital”) is recommended. Students, however, can also write an academic master’s thesis instead of the lecture recital. In the artistic master’s thesis an assignment (at least 10 pages not including sheet music examples) must also be prepared and presented. The master’s examination consists of the artistic master’s thesis provided that it was not replaced by an academic master’s thesis and a final exam in the central artistic subject. In this exam students will, under concert conditions, on one hand perform a piece of music of their own choice from the exam programme and on the other hand a programme that they have arranged themselves.

Entrance examinations

Students who did not earn their bachelor degree at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz have to audition to be admitted. Students whose mother tongue is not German have to prove proficiency in the German language (level B2).
