Versatility is one of the main strengths of the strings studies – including strong traditions and a theoretical knowledge of the performing arts on the one hand, and links to contemporary performing practices on the other. Students are encouraged to take a broad but integrated approach to the activities they undertake around their principal study, forging connections between technique and creativity, musicality and theory.

In addition to individual lessons, ensemble and orchestra practice, the studies are also enriched by regular master classes by international guest professors and opportunities to participate in different projects and perform together with professional musicians.

Students are able learn a wide range of skills enabling them to succeed and adapt in today’s rapidly changing professional environment. The study programme allows string players to choose a path best suited for their unique individual academic and musical goals.
