Educational programmes

As an institute for advanced studies and research in music, the Orpheus Institute has been providing an enriching educational and research environment for musicians since 1996.

Since 1996 the Orpheus Institute hosts a small-scale laureate programme for young promising musicians. In 2004 it introduced the first doctoral programme 'docARTES' for performers and composers in collaboration with Flemish and Dutch partner institutions. docARTES is now one of Europe’s leading doctoral schools in music.

Next to that, the Orpheus Institute also offers a Masterclass Chamber Music every year: 5 musicians with a rich chamber music experience provide invaluable tips and hints to young ensembles and prepare them for a concert at the Orpheus Institute.
