Meet people from around the globe as Conservatorium Maastricht is the most international conservatory in Europe. 56 countries are represented in our community. 75% of our students are international and many projects, masterclasses, and programmes are without borders.



We challenge you! Get out of your comfort zone, spark your imagination, and develop your own individual sound. The ability to see beyond your own boundaries, to let go and then regain control. Masterclasses, individual lessons, special programmes, concerts, and gigs. How do you want to move?



We work towards one common goal: to enable our students to develop into excellent musicians whose energy and creativity offer a valuable contribution to music and society on an international level.



The city's bustling student life mainly takes place in the historic centre of Maastricht, where the living is good. Where many cultural events and activities take place throughout the year. Where you are a stone's throw away from Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and France.
