Master of Music (free-lance singer)

Voice, focus on free-lance singing (Master of Music)

Introducing the programme:

In recent years, many singers have established themselves with a personal profile combining activities as performers with teaching and/or work in various areas of voice science. In order to be successful in this kind of professional career, it is essential to prepare by developing an individual profile. This Masters programme offers an opportunity unique within the German university scene.

With a high-profile team of teachers, the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover is in a position to offer first-class training oriented to students’ individuality, founded on good teaching tradition and the knowledge offered by recent scientific and pedagogical research.  Candidates who have completed a Bachelor degree or comparable programme have the opportunity to continue their training as a performing artist, as well as to gain in-depth knowledge of voice science and pedagogy.  The artistic programme includes stylistic specialisation in historic periods, genres or various singing styles.  The pedagogy and voice science programme offers the opportunity for independent research and publication, preparation for teaching at the university level as well as training for positions in cultural institutions. 

Contents and Goals of the Programme

The basic characteristic of this programme is the possibility to choose between a profile combining major concentration in artistic training and pedagogy or a profile including a voice science concentration. Both concentrations include voice pedagogy with lectures, seminars and work placements, which will expand on the basic knowledge of voice physiology, didactics and methods, including psychological aspects and information on current voice research offered in the Bachelor program.
