For more than 150 years the Music Academy of Basel has been a leading competence center for musical education at all levels. The Basel Academy of Music, the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the Jazzcampus and the Institute for Continuing Education offer a broad spectrum of teaching, research and further education: from age to new music, from audio design Over jazz to the various forms of improvisation. In the heart of the culture and music city of Basel, lecturers and students, children, young people and adults from Basel and around the world will meet and inspire this unique campus for the music - and, more recently, the Jazzcampus in the Kleinbasel. The history of the Basel Academy of Music is characterized by pioneering private initiatives and the political will to develop them further within the framework of public education. The beginnings of the institution go back to the founding of the Allgemeine Musikschule Basel. The teacher and orphan father Johann Jakob Schäublin and the society for the good and non-profit GGG laid the foundation stone for the music academy. The Basel Academy of Music is at the pulse of international development and is itself always impulsive. Innovative projects and collaborations enable new training courses and new fields of research. In addition to the central co-operation with the University of Basel, there are numerous forms of cooperation with music schools, music colleges and research institutes in Germany and abroad. With concerts, symposia and masterclasses, the Musikakademie - often also in cooperation with Sinfonieorchester and Theater Basel - takes part in the public and contributes to a lively cultural and research center Basel. The mission of the Musik Akademie der Stadt Basel is to be the leading Swiss institution of musical education at all levels with worldwide presence and at the same time strong roots in the region. Teaching and research in old and new music form the cornerstone of a professional training, which is committed to high values at all levels and has an existence in the field of higher education on the international music market. Musik Akademie der Stadt Basel has four music schools, namely: Music school Basel, Music school Jazz, Studio Music of Cultures and Music school of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Due to his close ties to the Hochschule für Musik , the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and the Musikschule Basel , the library of the Musik-Akademie has grown to the largest musical base in Switzerland. In terms of content, it offers a very broad spectrum from age to new music, from critical editions to specific literary literatures. In addition to the audio and copying center, some 60 workstations are also available. The inventory is fully developed in the IDS catalog Basel-Bern . The University of Music in Basel was founded in 1905 as the first conservatory in German-speaking Switzerland. It has been one of the leading training, research and event institutions in Europe. Since 2008, the Hochschule für Musik together with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the Musikhochschulen FHNW, is also part of the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz. The College of Music has sharpened its profile in various areas. Chamber music is particularly well-kept, be it in the Graduate Course for string quartets or in the classroom with chamber music and major lecturers, who cultivate the repertoire in all occupations. With a permanent chamber orchestra, the Chamber Academy, three projects (mostly major orchestral projects) are performed annually on tours. In harmony with the orientation of the cultural city of Basel, interpretation, composition, improvisation, electronic production and exploration of contemporary music are also among the main topics offered in cooperation with specialized ensembles (including Phoenix), international courses (including Darmstadt) and research institutes. The Schola Cantorum Basiliensis , founded in 1933, is today the oldest and presumably the most comprehensive educational and research institute for early music. Since 2008, the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, together with the College of Music, has been forming the Musikhochschulen FHNW and is thus also part of the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz. The Schola Cantorum Basiliensis consists of the university and the music school. The university sector offers professional training opportunities in all branches of the Old Music. The research department of the Scola Cantorum Basiliensis provides basic research in the field of ancient music; it also supports the teaching and the musical productions of the university. In addition, it organizes international scientific symposia and conferences and supervises its own publication series.
