Before you apply

Admission
requirements

First round 

The audition consists of two rounds. For the first round, the candidate needs to record 2 videos that contain:  

  • Video 1: A short introduction of him/herself in English: talk about your musical experiences, your motivation to study music, your main subject and why you choose to audition at Conservatorium Maastricht.  

  • Video 2: In the second video, the candidate demonstrates his/her artistic and technical skills. The video should be recorded in one take, without cuts or any edits.  The candidate should start by speaking their name and student number of Conservatorium Maastricht.  The video must be between 20 and 30 minutes. There are however no specific requirements in terms of style or degree of difficulty for the video.  The choice of the programme is left completely to the candidate, for this shows clearly to the teacher the inclination, taste and character of her/him and gives crucial information to the teacher. A technically easy Sarabande (for example from the BWV 995) can be much more difficult to perform than a show off piece where only manual skills are requested. For that reason, also thematic programmes are welcome (for example: 19th century sonatas, or baroque Fantasias).  

Examples of repertoire (not binding):  

  • J. Dowland: Fantasias  

  • G.Ph. Telemann: Fantasias for violin  

  • D. Scarlatti: Sonatas (any)  

  • J.S. Bach: any piece  

  • M. Giuliani: Sonatina op.71 n.3  

  • F. Sor: Any set of Variations  

  • R. Bennet: Impromptus  

  • M.M. Ponce: Sonatina Meridional  

 

Additional video’s (not required): The candidate may provide concert video registrations.  

The videos should be uploaded to an online platform such as YouTube.com or Vimeo.com. It is the candidate’s responsibility to make sure that the video links work.

Second round 

In the second round, the candidate is invited for an online theory test which determines whether the candidate is admissible. More information about the theory test may be found here.  

Furthermore, the audition committee may decide to invite the candidate for an online or in-person live audition after reviewing the video material. The repertoire for the live audition remains the same. Additional repertoire requests can be made by the committee. 

Additionally, the theory department may re-invite the candidate for a level test to determine whether the candidate can start the theory program on a higher level.
