Admission Tests Bachelor/Master of Arts in Music (direction, music writing, composition, instrument/voice)

For the students Jazz, this test will take place at the day of the specific admission tests. All jazz candidates participate in this test, even when they already obtained results in higher music education. More info about the general admission test jazz can be found in our online information brochure on page 52.
Specific discipline admission test (concerning your choice of instrument, direction, composition, music writing)
You can find the programmes in the online information brochure here at p 49-52 for admission at bachelor level. They also apply for the preparatory programmes.
For orientation at master level:
the candidate can bring an own piano-accompanist or will be, only for current repertoire, accompanied by our professional pianist-accompanist (or harpsichordist). You’ll have to bring the piano/harpsichord score with you.
The president of the jury will mention which music works have to be played at the moment of the test. The candidate will also have a conversation with the jury about the motivation, language knowledge and interests for the study programme.
The jury can refuse a candidate if the programme is not correct.
Orientation tests for the preparatory programs are the same as those for the Bachelor, see p 49 in our online infobrochure.
You prepare a high level music concert program of 30 minutes, of which the jury commission will choose a part. If you studied before at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and obtained at least 16/20 for your specialisation (instrument) in Ma 2, you can inscribe without admission test.
You prepare your project and send it two weeks before the date of the admission tests for the specific discipline (also possible for piano-accompaniment and lied-accompaniment) to the secretariat. This means a short description of your intentions and project (one A4) concerning the aims, subject and musical works you want to study during your postgraduate. For the admission test you prepare a program of 30 minutes, of which the jury commission will choose a part. Part of the test will consist of an interview concerning your music project.
You can also register for collective courses (without specialization in instrument or other) after an admission test that is focussed upon the course to follow and your motivation (e.g. optional course coming from another institution; interest; deepening).
