The role of the Music department is to train musicians for a broad range of music professions.

The Music Master for New Audiences and Innovative Practice (NAIP) provides future professional musicians with the knowledge and skills to become artistically flexible practitioners able to adjust to a wide range of societal contexts. The programme is targeting students with high-level performance skills interested in reaching new audiences by learning to develop and lead creative projects in diverse artistic, community and cross-sectoral settings. As a result, they will develop their leadership skills and collaborative practice in a variety of artistic and social contexts.

The Master is a collaborative programme offered by several higher music education institutions from countries in Europe.
