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.
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.
In our music training, your personality is the starting point. In your process, your teachers are not teachers who impose methods, but coaches who help you to think up your own solutions and tell your own story. For our teachers, there is no better challenge than to support and inspire you. In the beginning, they walk in front of you, then beside you and at the end of your studies, you are in the lead.
A good command of English (level B2) is required to make the most of your stay with us. Campus Lemmens does not own student accommodation. Therefore, you will have to rent a room on the private housing market for the duration of your stay. To help you in your search, please visit the website of the KUL or contact our student support services.
