The Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg (formerly Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg-Augsburg) is a music conservatoire based in Nuremberg (with a secondary building in Augsburg), Germany.

The Hochschule[edit]

The Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg is the result of the merging of the Meistersinger-Konservatoriums in Nuremberg and the Leopold-Mozart-Konservatorium in Augsburg in 1998.[1] The Meistersinger-Konservatorium dates back from 1821 when Johannes Scharrer founded the Städtische Singschule, which later became the State Music School (1883) and from 1972 as the "Fachakademie für Musik und Meistersinger-Konservatorium".

The courses[edit]

The hochschule offers degrees and postgraduate qualifications in all orchestral instruments, jazz, popular music, singing, opera, music education, conducting and composition.[1]
