Bowed Stringed Instruments

The training of the string classes ranges between the traditional and the modern, Dresden’s top orchestras and soloistic aspiration. Musicians from the Sächsischen Staatskapelle Dresden or the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra instruct alongside international soloists and renowned pedagogues.



Broadly Diversified, Practically Oriented, Individually

The focus of the study programme is the development of an artistic personality with all its creative potential, who confidently meets the requirements of the current music business. The basis for this is the comprehensive technical and musical training and promotion of creativity and independence.

Ensemble Work

In addition to regular main subject studies and correpetition, the work in the college symphony orchestra as well as chamber music belong to the main focuses and guarantee a broadly diversified education and individual promotion.



Concerts, Competitions and Orchestra Practice

Prizes of students at international competitions are as much a part of our field of study as solo performances with renowned orchestras in Central Germany, as well as work as substitutes and internships as practical training.



Talent Promotion

The continuous promotion of talent from the children’s class to the Saxon Regional Grammar School for Music (Sächsisches Landesgymnasium für Musik) to the College for Music is an integral component of the training.
