The Nordic Master in Jazz (NOMAZZ) is a joint initiative between the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and  the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

The programme leads to the Master of Music degree (MMus), according to each institution’s specific regulations. When a student is accepted to the programme, he/she will become a student of one of these four institutions, which will be his/her "home institution", and where he/she will also graduate from eventually. 

Career Opportunities

You will receive tuition from some of the best known musicians of the Nordic jazz scene. However, the course has no pre-conceived stylistic conventions, and the students on the course have wide-ranging tastes in music, meaning you can focus on your own personal expression.


In order for your application to be considered, the following documentation must be submitted:
  1. Signed, completed application form (a separate application form for each institution will be available on the website of the institution)
  2. Certificates detailing previous post-secondary music education - certified copies of your Bachelor's level degree, or equivalent, together with the Diploma Supplement (if available) to prove eligibility for studies at the Master's level. If the applicant is finalising his/her bachelor studies at the time of application, copies of the completed degree should be submitted at a later date according to local requirements. In this case, the applicant is asked to provide information about the status of his/her studies, in the form of a transcript of records or equivalent
  3. Short essay - a brief (250 word) description of your musical background, recent musical activities, and musical aims, as well as your reasons for applying to the programme. Please include your ideas on your possible study plan: topic, subjects, specific teachers etc.
