Lucerne School of Music
The Lucerne School of Music (Hochschule Luzern – Musik) is a professional school for musicians located in Lucerne, Switzerland, and closely associated with the city's annual music festival. It is a division of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
The school was formed in 1999 when the city's Conservatory of Music, Academy of Church Music, and Jazz School merged into a single university-status institution, called Musikhochschule Luzern (Lucerne College of Music).
The school began offering master's degrees in music in fall 2008. At about the same time, it became a division, or Departement, of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
