Some 360 teachers, amongst them numerous internationally celebrated artists, educationalists and academics, teach nearly 1,500 students from all over the world. The balance between music, drama, education and academic research and the commitment to excellence both at the highest level of solo performance and also in the broader training of ensemble players and teachers are at the core of HMTMH’s understanding of its role. To this end, the University provides a broad but differentiated offering of courses and programs, currently consisting of 33 study programs supplemented by world-class master classes.
About 500 public concerts and performances a year make the HMTMH one of the biggest organizers of cultural events in the State of Lower Saxony. In order to provide long-term support for “Hanover, Region of Culture” and “Lower Saxony, Land of Music”, Lower Saxony’s only conservatoire stays in a permanent exchange with society and initiates a number of musical outreach activities.
