Students who enter the Jazz/Popular Music specialization at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp can expect to graduate as excellent musicians who are ready to take their place in the international profession. The training and coaching you will receive is highly practical and customized to your individual needs and interests. From day one, the study programme will immerse you in international professional practice, with an emphasis on the development of your own artistic personality, the acquisition of expertise, and the engagement of your sense of entrepreneurship.
Our jazz course boasts many features which set it apart; its broad offering of projects, the performance opportunities which it presents on both a national and international level, the possibility to undertake a placement within a professional ensemble, individual coaching from leading artistic figures, and the connections which the study programme has with internationally-renowned jazz artists and festivals. We strive to provide the perfect fit for each and every student by individualizing your study programme and by giving flexibility in terms of choice of teachers.
That this approach is a fruitful one is borne out day after day by young successful bands such as STUFF, Pomrad, BRZZVLL, Dez Mona, SCHTNZL, Steiger, LABtrio, Linus, which are all primarily made up of alumni from the Royal Conservatoire, Antwerp.
