The International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) and the University for Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt am Main (HfMDK) offer a joint one-year master course in Contemporary Music designed for graduates in fields of instrumental playing (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, piano, percussion, violin, viola, violoncello, double bass), composition, conducting and sound directing. The goal of the Master’s degree programme is to teach contemporary performing techniques and the notation and interpretation of contemporary music, as well as to develop an understanding for aesthetic concepts immanent to the works, gaining comprehensive knowledge of the musical repertoire of the 20th and 21st century.

Students admitted to the course are awarded scholarships by the IEMA, the exact amount of which will be announced after audition invitations are sent. The course will run from 1. October 2019 to 30. September 2020. Events (rehearsals and concerts) of the IEMA may also take place during semester holidays. The deadline for applications is 11. February 2019.
