Music in Education


The Music in Education programme of Conservatorium Maastricht has been acclaimed for the fifth year running as one of the top degree programmes in the Netherlands and was rated number one within the music sector (source: Keuzegids Hoger Onderwijs 2017 (Guide to Dutch Higher Education)). We are extremely proud of this!

Educate, entice and encourage...Music in Education

You want to use music to inspire and encourage children, adolescents and adults as a teacher, educational assistant, special education practitioner, educator or welfare worker. You want to teach them to make music, but also introduce them to a broader cultural environment. As well as challenging people and taking them to a higher level, you enjoy giving them the chance to experience the joy and passion music brings. To do all this, you need to be able to relate to people, know what drives them, how they learn and how to motivate them. You must be able to make connections, spark enthusiasm and let it blossom.

Our programme has the power to see you as an individual, to give you intensive support in the development of your musicality and enable you to convey it to a broad target audience in a professional way. You will be inspired by our passion for music and education. You will feel it from the day you arrive until long after your graduation.

In the Music in Education programme, we train you - with a specialisation in Music in Arts Education or Special Music Education - to become a Bachelor of Music in Education. And we do it well; we have been repeatedly acclaimed as a top degree programme and are one of only twenty higher education programmes in the Netherlands rated as excellent in the Guide to Dutch Higher Education, 'Keuzegids HBO'. We are obviously proud of this, but also feel that titles are not goals in themselves. We are a team of committed lecturers who dedicate themselves year after year to teaching around 70 students. We also involve external parties, national and international education experts who are active in professional organisations. We keep up with new developments and implement these in our curriculum. We ensure knowledge development through PhD processes, national and international publications, interfaculty research and national consultation. We activate and initiate new professional fields and regularly organise (inter)national symposia or conferences. As a result, many graduates win thesis awards.
