Studying Music in Dresden

Diverse, Individual, Practical

The Dresden College of Music views itself as a place for the cultivation of the music culture in which art, science and instruction in theory and practice are interconnected. There is a lively exchange between tradition and renovation, continuity and experiment. Freedom to experiment, new working methods and artistic research are components of everyday life at the College.

Announcement from the administration about further opening measures of the HfM

Dear colleagues, dear students,

The Administrtion of the Hochschule für Musik Dresden has decided to open the university for all individual classes provided for in the study documents from Monday, May 11th, 2020. For ensemble and group lessons, the date for the start of the face-to-face lessons - as already communicated - remains June 2, 2020.

A prerequisite is, of course, strict compliance with the hygiene measures.

The university building on the power plant site will also reopen on Monday, May 11th, 2020, as will the entire new building, the rhythm icon and the rehearsal stage.

The previous semester room bookings were canceled due to the current situation. We ask that the room bookings are initially made weekly by the teachers themselves via the faculty secretariats and gate.

Please note that the canteen is still closed. The library is open for loan, the reading area remains closed.

The opening times of the university are as follows:
Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Saturday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Closed on Sundays for cleaning work

Even if the semester with the possibilities of digital teaching started in March, we hope that with the beginning of the individual lessons, a certain normalization of the semester events is also a sign of hope for many.

So that this step does not have to be withdrawn again, we hereby urge you once again to observe all measures ordered by the legislature and instructed by the administration - especially for entering the university - for your own and the protection of others.

Sincerely yours
Administration of the Hochschule für Musik
