Study information

The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague has an ambitious goal: to train tomorrow’s artists. We help students develop their artistic and creative talents to the highest possible standard. We foster excellence, critical capacity, and creativity in our students by continually challenging them to pursue new paths in professional practice.

Developing your craft as a musician is the first pillar of your study experience. Through individual main subject lessons, chamber music classes and theory classes, you develop yourself as a professional musician able to perform on an international level.

Solid preparation for a professional career is more important than ever. By playing in projects you learn how to work in a professional environment. International projects and collaboration with partner orchestras and ensembles make for a professionally oriented study environment.

Electives and minors allow you to take lessons in another department of the conservatoire and benefit from its strengths. Examples are three-year minors in subjects such as composition, conducting, early music, jazz, singing or education.

Come to our Piano Days from January 29th to 31st in Amare!

You will have the opportunity to have lessons with our Main Subject Teachers Classical Music Piano: Ellen Corver, David Kuyken, Slava Poprugin and Denys Proshchayev. Learn more.
