“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” Even if you don’t have Plato’s way with words - don’t worry, we don’t either - you likely largely agree if you are reading this text, as you are at least curious about studying Music in Germany, the land of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Händel - and Hans Zimmer and Rammstein, for something a tad more modern. The list of English-language programs is short, so consider learning German to at least an intermediate level to broaden your options, but even with only English skills there is still a place for you in multiple German Music/Music Studies programs… we encourage you to take a look and get shortlisting!
