“Ich glaube, es ist ein großes Ziel, zu lernen für echte Instrumente zu
komponieren und ganz besondersdie Chance zu bekommen, echte
Musiker zu hören, wie sie deine eigenen Stücke spielen.”
LARS HEMPEL Bachelor Student im 4. Semester, 2016
"Die Chance zu haben, Studenten, Regisseure und Schauspieler von Filmschulen kennenzulernen ist meiner Meinung nach das Wichtigste, weil man den ganzen Tag lernt, wie man Musik schreibt, komponiert und produziert. Schließlich lernt man nur, wie man Filmmusik komponiert, wenn man es auch wirklich macht."
MICHAEL FIRMONT Bachelor Student im 4. Semester, 2016
“Die meisten Leute hier, die nach ihrem Studium arbeiten wollen,
gehen in ein Studio oder zu einem Komponisten und arbeiten für ihn.”

The Media Music Composer program at the musicube academy covers a wide range of topics based on well-established content. The curriculum is structured in a way that allows the decision regarding a professional emphasis (sound design, music production, or audio engineering) to be made at a later time after learning more about each field. The year-long Media Music program lays the technical and musical foundations for a career as a music producer, jazz/rock/pop composer, sound mixer, audio engineer, and sound designer.
The Media Music Composer program can also be pursued as a bachelor's and/or master's degree in the fields of music production, jazz/rock/pop music production, audio engineering, and sound design.
Film Scoring and Production is a two-semester preparatory course for the musicube academy’s Film Scoring and Production degree.
The goal of this program is to teach the fundamentals of composition and audio engineering to enable musical ideas to be created and applied in films using a digital studio environment.
The content of Film Scoring and Production courses is based on the Bachelor of Music Composition for Film and Theatre program, and is the ideal preparation for the bachelor program's prerequisite aptitude test. Students may also continue their preparatory studies with the next successive musicube academy course, Advanced Film Scoring and Production.
The Advanced Film Scoring and Production program lasts two semesters and works toward completion of the musicube academy certificate in Advanced Film Scoring and Production. The goal of this program is to provide musicians, composers, and audio engineers the specialist knowledge needed to work with film and audio-visual media. To reflect the advanced level of the content in this vocational training course, a degree in the fields of music or audio engineering is part of the admission requirements. In certain cases, an entrance exam that proves a certain level of prior experience and ability can take the place of a degree.
The Bachelor of Media Music Producer program lasts four years and culminates with a Bachelor of Music in Media Music university degree. This program is offered at the Enschede campus of the ArtEZ University of Arts.
The Bachelor in Media Music covers four majors:
The Bachelor of Music Composition for Film and Theaterí program lasts four years and concludes with a Bachelor of Music degree in the field of Composition for Film and Theater. The program is offered at the Arnhem campus of the ArtEZ University of Arts.
In this program, students will learn composition studies in many styles along with applied studies in sound engineering. Composition and audio engineering receive equal treatment in the major, which is presented in the context of visual media such as film, television, theater, and dance at a high level of performance and artistry. Cooperation with several film universities provides practical applications of the lessons learned and leads to professional work in the field of film composition.
Master of Media Music is the masterís degree program for game and advertising composers, music producers, and electronic artists.
This program brings together pop musicians, music producers, and music managers in a learning environment that reflects all aspects of the media and entertainment industry. This shapes the learning processes and tailors them to professional reality.
The Master of Music in Film Score Composition and Production takes two years and concludes with a corresponding academic degree of the same name. The degree is offered in cooperation with the ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem, Netherlands. The program builds upon a profound study of composition and audio engineering. It gives previously educated film score composers the chance to record their own compositions for film with a symphonic orchestra, and the opportunity to learn about the business side of the industry.
The cooperation between the musicube academy and ArtEZ University of Arts provides all the benefits of a private institution and a public university.
Our programs are cost-effective, performance-oriented, interconnected, and geared to the practical artistic and scientific / academic needs of the industry. Our student’s proficiency is exceptionally high, providing a foundation for a successful career after graduation. Most our students find work in the industry after completing their studies.
This high rate of success can be traced back to the musicube academy’s sophisticated educational concept. We work with our students to develop their artistic and technical abilities. A maximum of six participants take part in each of our seminars, meaning there are no overcrowded lecture halls. Instead, our students methodically learn the material in small groups with other students with similar knowledge and experience.
Part of the musicube academy’s success and the talent of our students stems from the ability to extend the time frame of the program. While other bachelor programs in this field are limited to four years, the musicube academy can offer students up to five years thanks to our cooperation with the ArtEZ University of the Arts. The extra time only strengthens our student’s skills by the time they graduate.
The musicube academy is an institute that specializes in and focuses on film music. Everyone involved in the musicube academy takes part ambitiously and passionately. We believe music is a basic human need, meaning musical composition and production is important and necessary for society. We welcome anyone who shares this passion with us. Our goal is to enable our students to pursue a career as a film music composer or in a related field.
