Study description

Due to the economical and easily combined study plans, students can also decide as to whether they wish to take a second study alongside their main study. The most popular combined studies, apart from the Diploma/IGP study, are combined electric/double bass or vocals/guitar/or piano. Further to the expanded technical skills, the second study also provides a higher qualification for various musical projects as well as teaching opportunities in educational institutions following graduation with this officially recognised degree.
