Programme profile

CvA has developed a very innovative education in the field of pop music.. The department offers full-time tuition in Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards and Vocals, Music Production, Song writing, Creative Sound Design, Music Business and more. The school differs from more traditional music academies by its focus on writing original rock and pop music.

Performance, production and coaching are the cornerstones of this diverse programme, which thoroughly prepares the student for all facets of a career as an enterprising artist. A large team of specialists active in the professional world are brought in to supplement the set core of CvA teachers. In this way, the programme corresponds directly to the professional world, reflecting the latest developments in popular music and education.

Future pop artists trained at the CvA will be versatile: their studies will focus on performance, pedagogy (in preparation for a career as e.g. a band instructor) and creative endeavours (e.g. music producer) and will promote the open-mindedness of enterprising artists
