The course gives you a chance to get lessons, correpetition, chambermusic lessons and a try-out in preparation of your entrance exam. The entrance exams will take place on the 10th of March 2017 and includes a theoretical and a practical part. Please note that an English test is required as well, see admission (please find the link below).

• Students who are advanced on an historical instrument an who would like to get introduced to our department otherwise.

• Students who are advanced on a modern instrument and would like to get introduced to it's historical counterpart.
