Musik Kultur og Historie
The programme is taught by a number of distinctive musical personalities who also play a defining role as performing artists on the Danish and international
The basic philosophy behind the programme is that the development of the best possible instrumental/vocal skills underpins the development of an artistic and
personal form of expression – in performance and composing as well as in teaching.
The programme in jazz and contemporary rhythmic music is structured in a way that allows individual lessons, ensemble playing electives and project weeks
to integrate naturally.
All of this is reinforced by lots of clinics and master classes with exceptional artists from around the globe, an annual trip to New York, and tons of concert
experience both at AMDA and in the cultural environment of the cities and surrounding areas.
The Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Southern Denmark welcomes foreign students. Most teachers, students and members of the administrative staff speak good English – and are happy to do so!
Solo lessons can be conducted in English upon agreement between student and teacher. Group teaching is in Danish. Some teachers are able and willing to summarize their teaching for foreign students.Foreign students should ask their teachers for a list of publications in English (or any other appropriate language) that supports the curriculum.
Foreign students are warmly encouraged to follow language classes in order to learn Danish as quickly as possible after arriving in Denmark.
