The Instrument/Voice department of Luca School of Arts is an inspiring and creative environment for European students, a setting in one of the main university cities in Europe. We offer different majors: voice, accordion, guitar, harp, strings, piano, organ, brass instruments, wind instruments, percussion and marimba.
The Bachelor and Master program focuses on an instrumental and artistic development towards a professional musician, soloistic and orchestral training, projects, research and entrepreneurship. Chamber music and ensemble playing, in all its diversity, are strongly anchored, with student performances, lunch and evening concerts, in- and outside.
Guided by a team of international renowned teachers and soloists, we also offer additional master classes, workshops and concerts with leading artists. Our students are into a strong and inquisitive performer, transferring their knowledge and skills to others and managing their own musical future.
"I came for my main subject teacher, but stayed with LUCA for everything else."
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.
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.
