Inspirational course about vocal leadership for (choir) conductors, music teachers and conservatory students.

2-year course

Beginning in January 2017, Codarts will start the 2-year course “Vocal Leadership”. This is a 2-year part-time, certificate based course on a post-bachelor level. To be accepted, an admission test is required. It is not necessary to have a Bachelor’s degree from a conservatory if you can demonstrate a commensurate level of quality during the admission test.

The course is comprised of 12 intense weekends (3 per semester) and will include practical, hands-on tools and classes like choral direction from different international teachers, move & groove, piano, ear training, arranging and singing. Through a digital video connection, a number of classes will be simultaneously conducted in Rotterdam, Tilburg and Denmark, giving vocal leadership a contemporary and international quality.

More info about the admission test and about the content of the course you can find at For application and any questions, please send an email to 

Fulltime master info!

Next option for joining the fulltime master is september 2017, auditions on a tuesday in June. Check this link.

We hope you'll help us by spreading the word about the education possibilities, so we can keep offering them in the Netherlands. Thank you in advance! 

Met vriendelijke groet/Kind regards, Merel
