Higher Studies in music

University of Bergen Grieg Academy

Our profile is modelled on internationally recognised performing arts environments (classical, jazz, folk music), composition, music therapy, musicology and music education. The study programme emphasises independence and reflection. Students are able to explore a wide range of expressions and practical approaches, and develop through dialogue and critical discussion. Our aim is to create meeting points between different artistic and scientific disciplines at the department and elsewhere at the university.Our teaching staff represents a broad range of active professionals who are recognised both nationally and abroad. Artistic research forms the basis for all teaching. Many of our orchestral instrument teachers are also prominent musicians with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and other professional ensembles.
