Exchange programme in the BA Music
Campus Leuven / Lemmens

In our Composition department, you combine your personal creativity with historical insight. You learn to write, arrange and improvise music. You also study harmony, polyphony and fugue.

Curriculum

To perform your music, you will work together with the many musicians in the house and enter into interactive collaborations with people from other art forms. In this way, you will learn what place music can occupy in today's society. 

The curriculum is broadened to include fugue and orchestral theory, and your teachers will guide you in your search for a personal style.

If you would like to know more about the subjects you will be taught, have a look at the course schedule with study guide for content and credits for bachelor's and master's degrees. 

Masterclasses, symposia and intense practical experiences

Every year, the program organizes interesting masterclasses, workshops and clinics with external experts, renowned foreign instrumentalists, music therapists and pedagogues. Music practice is central to our campus. You not only make music during your practical lessons or self-study but also participate in our ensembles, choirs and orchestras and the prestigious artistic productions. These experiences transform you into a team player.

Cross overs

LUCA School of Arts is a biotope in which collaboration between students from different art disciplines is stimulated. This results in interesting crossovers and innovative artistic practices.

Seminars

Seminars are an integral part of the master's program. LUCA has a particularly rich and diversified range of research seminars fed by the research groups of our campuses from Brussels, Ghent, Genk and Leuven. Each campus has its own researchers, research traditions and disciplines. 

Together with your coordinator, you will select two seminars that match your ambitions. You can also choose from the courses given at the KU Leuven or its associated university colleges.
