Studying Music in Aachen
The Musikhochschule Aachen is a department of the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln (the University School of Music and Dance Cologne). In the 1970s, under Science Minister Johannes Rau, the institute emerged from the Grenzland-Konservatorium and then, along with the institutes of Cologne and Düsseldorf, became part of the Musikhochschule Rheinland. In this ensemble, the Musikhochschule Aachen has gained an excellent reputation for its practical training and its numerous cooperations with the city of Aachen and the Euregio. ƒ HfMT
Excellence Uni Aachen – Small but Nice
By today, the Musikhochschule Aachen has developed into an important cultural institution and an authority in music education. It hosts about 160 events a year in its newly renovated buildings at the Theaterplatz and it organizes various concert cycles e.g. in Aachen (Couven-Museum, Krönungssaal, Schloss Rahe), Alsdorf (Energeticon) and in the Dutch city of Vaals (De Kopermolen). These events are invaluable performance opportunities for the school’s about 200 students, who can gain even more experience by partaking in the large variety of concerts taking place in the Euregio. Aachen alumni are indispensable in the region’s music schools. With the pedagogical and musical skills acquired during their studies, they are great assets to music education.
