What is this programme about

Conservatorium Maastricht, very international in its composition, is a close-knit community. We work towards one common goal: to let our students blossom, in an amicable atmosphere, into excellent musicians whose energy and creativity offer a valuable contribution to the international world of music and to society.

The Classical Music programme offers the following main subjects: Bassoon, Cello, Choral Conducting, Clarinet/Bass Clarinet, Composition, Double Bass, Ensemble Conducting Contemporary Music, Flugelhorn, Flute, Guitar, Harp, Horn, Music Theory, Oboe, Orchestral Conducting, Organ, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Solo Singing, Opera, Tenor Tuba/Euphonium, Trombone, Trumpet, Viola, Violin, Wind/ Brass Band Conducting and Accompaniment (only in the Master’s programme).

Career prospects

Students are prepared for the profession of member of an orchestral/chamber music ensemble, composer, choral musician, accompanist, soloist, or teacher. Graduates work within all genres of music. They are active as performing, teaching or composing musicians, musical directors, or work for a music company, a recording studio or concert agency.


In the first two years, the core curriculum (major) includes your main subject as well as music theory, music history, basic repertoire, entrepreneurship and lessons specifically related to your main subject.

Your free elective (minor) allows you to give a particular personal touch to your development as a musician, for example by playing in an ensemble, selecting additional programme components, and so on. If you choose to do a minor in teaching, this will take up the entire free elective.
