The labour market for aspiring musicians and music teachers is complex and demands an ever increasing degree of broad competence.
This means that our students need to learn how to become self-reliant entrepreneurs with many strings in their bows other than those which are purely musical. Both individual work and support from the Academy are required in this process.
To best help our students in their careers we therefore started the Career Services Centre.
The Career Services Centre has gathered a vast range of useful information for people in the process of building a career, with the exception of material on actual performing or teaching.
This can involve everything from information about job vacancies and auditions to continuing education courses in, for example, marketing, finance, ergonomics or mental training.
We also offer open seminars and individual counselling with experts in various areas such as starting your own company, creative thinking or how to fill in your tax return.
Through the alumni network, where all former students and staff of the Academy are welcome, we encourage dialogue between present and former students to assure the quality of our educational programmes and ensure that they are in phase with the contemporary world of music.
The Career Services Centre is available by arrangement.
