Why study in Weimar?

The Master’s degree in Music Theory in Weimar is characterised by its great practical relevance. Students are prepared for potential teaching roles via tutorials and courses, in conjunction with the "Johann Nepomuk Hummel" music school in Weimar.

Teachers cover a broad spectrum of music theory, from medieval music through to the present day, from composition through to musicology.

The Centre for Music Theory presents the conference "Musiktheorie und Hörerziehung" every year, which is renowned across Germany, in collaboration with the Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie (GMTH).

The book series "Paraphrasen – Weimarer Beiträge zur Musiktheorie" ("Paraphrases" – Contributions to Music Theory from Weimar’), published by Olms Verlag, opens up the opportunity to have outstanding papers published.

With its excellent tradition of spiritual history, Weimar is a stimulating environment within which to bring together art and academic research.
