Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg
We invite you to meet tradition and innovation
The Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg (Nuremberg University of Music) is the third State University of Music in Bavaria and was established in 2008. However, its tradition goes back to the early 19th century, when the first singing school was founded in 1821 from which afterwards the Nuremberg Meistersinger Conservatory was established.
Today, around 450 students are trained in musical performance and music education in Nuremberg. Bavarian’s second city shows along to a large and significant history a charming architecture with its nearly intact medieval wall.
First-class courses are offered in all orchestra instruments, but also in singing, piano, organ, guitar, accordion and classical saxophone. There is also a lively jazz department, which is thoroughly integrated in the clubs of the city, and a department of early music, which regularly attracts unusual events to Nuremberg, thanks to its links throughout Europe.
We offer high qualification and career guidance
We consider the high quality of artistic training as important as your personal career.
Along to the academic courses you can gain extra key qualifications that enable you to cope with all future employment opportunities.
