Our university – the University of Music and Theatre Munich (Hochschule für Musik und Theater München, abridged HMTM) – is one of the most prestigious institutions for education in music, dance and theatre in Europe.

About 1.400 students from over 60 different countries can chose from more than 100 different study programmes. Nearly 500 teachers with broad experience provide a very individual training to our students.

The University of Music and Theatre Munich offers studies in composing, performing and teaching in all music subjects, as well as ballet, cultural management and digital arts.
