Training professional musicians with a distinct artistic personality…
At the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, we welcome young artists with passion and talent and transform them into musicians with unique artistic personalities, equipped with the professional excellence, creativity and know-how to engage in an active way in both the local and international music scene and within the community.
…through outstanding, bespoke study programmes
With training that is highly customized to the individual, every student is given the chance to blossom and to reach the highest possible standards of artistry. An internationally-renowned teaching staff provides extensive, individual coaching within the various specialisms. The musical development of the student is supported by a broad basis of artistic, theoretical and general cultural competencies and shaped by a rich spectrum of hands-on professional experience.
…with a critical and open approach
Our programmes focus strongly on research within the arts, linked to artistic performance practice. Through a process of continuous review and assessment, we ensure that our courses are highly reactive to the artistic, socio-cultural, economic and social evolutions that take place in professional music life.
…in a truly international context
By contextualizing the study programmes within the field of professional practice, our students are constantly stimulated to actively present themselves within today’s international music scene. Our unique collaboration with deSingel arts campus, our place within the AP University College, and our many national and international partnerships provide exceptional opportunities which are used both for the benefit of the Conservatoire as a whole and also for the optimization of the study experience of each unique student.
