The Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln is one of the world’s foremost performing arts schools and one of the largest music institutions for higher education in Europe with its three campuses in Cologne, Wuppertal, and Aachen.
In 1927, as one of the first academic institutions for music in Germany, the University was honored with the title of “Hochschule” (institution of higher education). This distinction followed the decision to abandon traditional academic programs, which focused solely on soloist performance offered at conservatories, to instead embrace a more global goal by introducing the “music education” program: artistically and pedagogically educating musicians to be as multifaceted as possible.
