Support our students

Mission - Who are we?

Conservatorium Maastricht Friends is a community of music lovers who stimulate the development of innovation in music. The basis for this lies in the education of talented students from the Classical, Jazz, and Music in Education departments at Conservatorium Maastricht. Lovers contribute financial support for (international) projects, world-renowned masterclasses, instrument maintenance and ‘first-aid kits’ for students in need.


Conservatorium Maastricht Friends strives to promote a musical climate without borders, giving the students ample opportunity to develop as performers/creators, teachers, researchers, and/ or entrepreneurs. This allows them to contribute to the international world of music and to society. Do you agree that this is important?


Musicians are ambitious, focused, creative and studious people. While immersed in their studies, many find themselves struggling with financial difficulties. Whether this is due to budget cuts in the music sector or personal issues, it inevitably means they are unable to attend certain crucial programmes. We have set ourselves the following goals to help remedy this situation: 

  • Enhance the environment at Conservatorium Maastricht; enable and support education to boost quality.
  • Build a strong community of alumni and provide life-long learning opportunities. 
  • Build a strong community of lovers with a passion for music, recognizing the importance of fundraising. 
  • Within the music community (students and teachers), we want to foster initiative, talent and innovation through financial aid.
