Studie-informatie

The Ensemble Academy (EA) represents the fulfilment of a long-time dream of five ensembles in the top echelon of Dutch music life, the Royal Conservatoire and two prominent contemporary music venues.

In 2017 Asko|Schönberg, Calefax, Ensemble Klang, the New European Ensemble and Slagwerk Den Haag have joined forces to offer this unique Master’s specialisation in collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire and the music venues Korzo and Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ.

The Ensemble Academy is an incubator for talented musicians and composers who are still studying. The students of the Ensemble Academy work with the programme’s partners in national and international productions.

In addition to improving their skills on their instrument, the Master’s students in the Ensemble Academy also receive lessons in programming, production, marketing and communication. There are also various possibilities for the students to do internships with the partners in the programme. In the process, they have the opportunity to learn about the essential back-office aspects of a professional musician’s life and gain experience on stage and behind the scenes, as well as building a personal network.

The strength of the Ensemble Academy is that students are already deeply involved in the professional practice during their studies and have already gained professional experience as a musician and established a network by the time they graduate.
