Online certification

To support all musicians and future students of the Conservatorium of Amsterdam to take the next step in their musical career, there is the opportunity to obtain an online music certificate. A cost- and time-efficient way of pursuing your true passion. 

This certificate can be obtained by following online music classes, which are given throughout the (school)year. This means you can participate in the classes whenever it suits you best. 

When the course is completed, you will receive a certificate of participation. This can bring great benefits for the remaining of your education. With this certification, enrolling into the main curricula of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam may be easier. It can also give the possibility to be used to dispense other subjects in the curriculum you are enrolled in. Both these benefits are fully depending on which degree you are applying for or already have applied for.



Learning routine

The online courses vary from jazz trumpet masterclasses to advanced rhythm for classical musicians. The lessons are built up of a series of related video lessons, each structured around a specific topic. Every week you will be able to view a new video lesson, which consists of:

  • Examples that musically define the sound of the topic you are studying in each video.
  • A study routine section in which we first discuss how to study the specific topic of each lesson. We will then play several exercises specially written to show you how to structure your daily study routine.
  • Assignments that will help you consolidate and practice what you have learned in each video.

It differs per program whether you have to study and submit assignments, and whether it is possible to receive personalized feedback. In some of the cases, you are requested to study and practice the topics that you have learned, and record a video of yourself carrying out an assignment. When you have finished the assignment, you can submit your recording, on which you will receive personalized feedback from your teacher.
