Akademia umeni - logoThe aim of the Faculty of Music is to educate professional concert performers such as soloists, chamber and orchestral players, concert and opera singers, composers and choral conductors in Bachelor and Masters study programmes and since 2006 also in Doctorate degree study programmes.

Students and teachers of the Faculty of Music regularly take part in concert performances at home and abroad which are actually a part of the art-education process.

The aim of the Faculty is to provide a creative space for the comprehensive development of the artistic personality with an emphasis on the human and intellectually mature attitude of the artist in contemporary society. Individual study programmes aim at developing a self-reliant artistic creativity and ability of innovative and unique way of thinking.

One of the priority objectives of the Faculty of Music is also international co-operation. Therefore, the Faculty of Music has in the previous years established co-operation with several artistic and cultural institutions in Europe and elsewhere in the world. During recent academic years the Faculty has also successfully involved its students and teachers in the Socrates and Erasmus mobility programmes.
