The HEM comprises six departments, each with its own teaching, research and production activities: the Keyboard Instruments department, the Orchestral Instruments department, the Vocal department, the Early Music department, the Music and Movement department and the Composition and Theory department.
The departments are linked by various common activities (ensemble work and work between composers, improvisers and performers) and are also involved in multidisciplinary partnerships with other schools.
