We want our students to establish a solid instrumental understanding of the relationship between tradition and innovation. On behalf of the jazz education, the faculty has established a close collaboration with external partners both locally, regionally and internationally. Stavanger Jazz Forum, Stavanger Concert Hall and Tou Scene are all examples of institutions that contribute to a unique and creative study environment for our jazz students. 

The latest addition to our study portfolio is our new DigJazz programme, which is an online further education in improvisational music and provides an introduction to ear-based methods for educators and musicians who want to expand their musical competence.

Bjergsted Culture Park

The jazz education in Stavanger is located in Bjergsted culture park, which consists of a number of cultural institutions that work closely with the faculty in general and jazz education in particular. In Bjergsted there is a cultural school, the department of music and dance at the Stavanger Cathedral School and the Stavanger Concert Hall where the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra is housed. Stavanger Jazz Forum and Mai Jazz are the education's most important partners. In the eastern part of town is Tou Scene, which also contributes to a creative study environment for our jazz students.

Your musical voice

Depending on your progress in your studies, UiS emphasizes that you must develop your personal musical voice with us. The year of study and bachelor's lays the foundation for a lifelong development in performing music. In further education, master's and PDM, there will increasingly be a focus on developing specialized knowledge aimed at a flexible labor market.

Interaction

Interaction and concert activities are a fully integrated part of everyday study at UiS. You will participate in ensembles of different composition. Blå Trå and Bjergsted jazz ensemble are arenas where students are given the opportunity to work with both national and international jazz stars. You will also be challenged to contribute to the organization of productions during the course of your studies.
