Bachelor studies “Jazz and Contemporary Music”

The Hochschule für Musik Saar (HfM) in Saarbrücken offers a special form of jazz studies, the four-year bachelor studies “Jazz and Contemporary Music”

To establish these studies the curriculum of a high quality artistic degree program in classical jazz has been extended by the subjects „Contemporary Music“, „Electronic Music“ and modern „Crossover Forms“ of sound and improvisation. Thus the HfM Saar has established up-to-date education in the field of all existing musical structures of jazz and improvised music – an opportunity for studies for creative musicians, composers and teachers working altogether in jazz, improvised and contemporary music. 

The students are going to be enabled in the course of their studies to meet most diverse musical contexts and to feel well in doing so, to prove themselves competent in marketing and management and to become professional teachers. Correspondingly the studies' design is built to educate musicians to become extraordinary soloists in jazz/contemporary music, to enable them at the same time to compose and produce music for other genres and to qualify them in order to make a living as teachers in one-to-one lessons as well as in organising and carrying out workshops. 

The bachelor studies “Jazz and Contemporary Music is characterized by numerous  features:

1. an internationally experienced team of lecturers
2. extraordinarily intensive students' support because of the manageable size of the HfM Saar
3. variably organized jazz ensembles and orchestras
4. the possibility to gain experience in special ensembles together with the lecturers
5. the opportunity of gaining practical experience in concerts arranged by the HfM, to  network and to generate income by doing so
6. at the same time artistic and pedagogic education in jazz on the highest level
7. special opportunities in „Recording“ and „Electronic Music“, a versatile computer studio with almost professional recording options
8. comprehensive offers in „Second Major“, „Ensembles“ and „Music Theory/Com- position“ 

The bachelor studies “Jazz and Contemporary Musicat the HfM Saar also offers numerous opportunities to join the extraordinarily active and varied jazz scene of the region of the Saar and the surrounding area of Lothringen and Luxemburg to start own band projects. The surprisingly big pool of musicians from this region is predestined to boost musical projects of whatever character. Apart from that the HfM cooperates with the jazz club "Domicil" in Saarbrücken, the "Club Brunnenhof" in Trier and the broadcasting company Saarländischer Rundfunk (SR). 

Having finished the bachelor studies “Jazz and Contemporary Music” it is possible to enrol for the master studies “Soloist in Jazz and Contemporary Music”.
