In addition to researching the social and musical framework conditions that accompany instrumental and artistic learning processes and the recognition and promotion of musical talent by the children's class, the main tasks of the institute include holding national and international symposia, lectures, workshops and discussion forums.
Institute for Musical Teaching and Learning
Within the Dresden College of Music, contemporary music of various styles is of comparatively great importance. The Institute of New Music sets unusual accents in Dresden's cultural landscape with a multitude of concerts and theoretical events.
Institute for New Music
Here you will find everything you need to produce, mix and perform electronic music and unusual performances of all kinds. There are lessons in sound research, acoustics, audio programming and electronic composition.
Studio for Electronic Music
The centre sees itself as a meeting place and umbrella for all music-theoretical activities outside the college's teaching activities. It is intended to sharpen the profile of a subject that has undergone major changes in recent years, both inside and outside the college.
Centre for Music Theory
Networks in the art sector create sustainable synergy effects and at the same time provide new, often even unexpected stimuli. With these aspects in mind, KlangNetz Dresden was created under the direction of the Institute for New Music at the Dresden College of Music.
Students are provided with modern, efficient capacities for audio and video production of various types, sizes and contents on request of the subject area and with the support of the staff of the recording studio. This is complemented by the realisation of sound engineering requirements in connection with concerts by students and professors in the concert hall and the small hall.
The harmony of musical and grammar school education characterizes the support of musically gifted, interested children and young people at this traditional school.

The support of musically gifted children is the focus of the work of the children's class at the HfM Dresden. The motto "With music and movement to music" accompanies the lessons from the age of two. Intensive training of the ear, the development of further general musical skills, getting to know different instruments as well as the possibility to learn an instrument are the contents of the work in the children's class.
