What is it like to study at the Nuremberg University of Music?

  • In addition to playing technique and sound quality, the focus is on sound musical knowledge and an individual's relationship with their instrument.
  • Our team of lecturers in this programme ensures a creative and energetic working atmosphere.
  • Close collaboration with contemporary composers enables our students to perform works written especially for them.
  • Students learn about the latest innovations in instrument making and are given the opportunity to try out new performance possibilities.
  • Regular instrument exhibitions at the University provide an opportunity to compare and test different instruments.

Secondary instruments have their importance

The secondary instruments are also given the importance that professional musical practice demands. These include the piccolo, oboe d'amore and English horn, E-flat and bass clarinets, and contrabassoon.

We encourage a high level of initiative - there are no limits to creativity and your own ideas are always welcome!

Project work in mixed ensembles and orchestra

Our extensive programme of interdisciplinary projects provides students with special inspiration for artistic and lively exploration of different works and other instruments. Chamber music projects, for example, regularly involve mixed instrumentation: Wind instruments with strings, with percussion or with voice and piano.

Music Education and Music Pedagogy encourage creativity and personal expression through regular project work in ensembles and orchestras.

High quality equipment

Our University has the highest quality instruments and the most modern machines and tools for making oboe and bassoon reeds.
