Program Overview

Program Description:
This program starts off with a basic study period, during which the students concentrate on their main instrument both in one-to-one and in group lessons. Other subjects are harmonics, aural theory, composition and theoretical subjects such as “History of Pop Music”. As they advance in their studies the students specialize either in music pedagogy, performance or songwriting/ producing. An international orientation, stylistic diversity and New Media are priority in this program of study. In order to make the music study program accessible to international students, the hKDM will launch a new program in September 2014. The International Program in Popular Music is the first study program at the hKDM, which is instructed in English. In addition to that the school offers language classes and cultural activities and trips in and around Freiburg.

One of the educational principles at the university is a clear focus on interdisciplinary work. By encouraging our students to engage in interdisciplinary projects we hope to improve their social skills, broaden their personal horizon and communicate an understanding for the various forms of creative art. The participation in an interdisciplinary workshop each semester is obligatory for all students. In order to prepare our students for their professional life, the school frequently organizes collaborations with external business partners and art galleries. This is essential not only for networking, but also to improve the students‘ skills in dealing with potential clients. Each semester the hKDM welcomes students from all over the world. Furthermore the school engages frequently in international projects. In July 2012 the hKDM was accepted in the ERASMUS program and is now officially qualified for hosting and international students. Currently we are initiating cooperations with partner universities from different countries. The hKDM is located in the heart of Freiburg, one of the most vibrant and juvenile cities in Germany. Both France and Switzerland are in close reach, which contributes to the cultural diversity within the area. Furthermore, the city is known for its almost Mediterranean climate, its high quality of life and its ecologically beneficial policy.
