Guitar students can earn a degree in the Music Performance program.
Successful graduates in the bachelor's program can continue with a four-semester master’s program in Guitar. Here too, the main focus is on instruction in the performance major. In addition, four areas of focus are available for selection: Flamenco and South American folklore, early and contemporary music, chamber music and music promotion. As is the case in the bachelor’s program, the master’s program also offers a wide range of elective courses allowing students to further develop and extend their artistic abilities.
Detailed information about the sequence and contents of the program can be found in the Guitar (master’s) module overview.
Students who study guitar in Düsseldorf benefit from a variety of performance opportunities both inside and outside the university; for example at the Haus der Universität or the Robert-Schumann-Saal. In addition, every two years the university organizes a guitar festival with concerts and workshops by internationally recognized performers such as Eliot Fisk or Vicente Amigo. Finally, students can take part in the Sieghardt Rometsch Competition, which takes place every year in the solo and chamber music categories.

International applicants must possess adequate German language skills. The B2 certificate (according to the Goethe Institute classification system) or a comparable qualification is required. This also applies to direct enrollment in a higher semester.
