Music student meets Grammy-winner

With a passion for perfection: Veronica Sterrer is one of 3,200 students from around the world who has made it to the best music university in the world: the mdw - University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. (This has been officially confirmed: in the QS University Ranking 2019, the mdw and the Juillard School share first place).

Those who think of Mozart, Beethoven, piano and classical music when it comes to a musical education can expand their idea of the elite music university with the following video: Veronica Sterrer is studying instrumental (vocal) pedagogy at the iPop Institute (where everything revolves around popular music). She made a video with us, in which she lets us participate in her everyday life as a student. She describes it like this: "I'm constantly surrounded by inspiring and talented people. And they show me new things every day. I'm very grateful for that."

When we meet her on campus, we feel her inspiration, we hear her story, we attend her rehearsals, her workshop with guest lecturer Steve Sidwell. – Yes, exactly: the Grammy-winner who, for example, wrote the music for the Queen cinema film "Bohemian Rhapsody". Because at the mdw, the best learn from the best ....
