Mission. The mission of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre is to sustain, develop and promote Estonian culture at the highest level, through music and theatre studies as well as creative activities and research.

The fundamental values of EAMT

Creativity: we provide opportunities for meaningful expressions of creativity at a high level.

Playfulness: we understand that playfulness is the basis of any creative activity, enabling new approaches to be discovered and to flourish.
Proficiency: we strive for competence, the sharing of ideas and knowledge, as well as consistent learning and growing, thereby setting an example for the current and future creators in the field of music and theatre.
Commitment: we recognise dedication to a calling as a requisite for achieving a high level of creativity. We offer an environment conducive to commitment, enabling the discovery of prevailing truths as well as the creation of fresh interpretations.

Preserving our national culture: we understand our unique responsibility to sustain and nurture the generations of creators in music and the dramatic arts, who will ensure the role of Estonian music and theatre in our national identity in the future. We are aware of the significant impact of our work in upholding and developing Estonian culture.

Openness: we are open to different approaches in art, education and research, the versatility of styles and methods in music and theatre. We share ideas and knowledge, and acknowledge our mistakes. We are united and straightforward in our search for the best solutions.

Equal and respectful treatment: we treat all students, colleagues and partners equally and with respect, and give credit to their success and achievements.


 In 2019, the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre was for the first time included in the QS World University Ranking, which is one of the top international ranking systems measuring the popularity and performance of universities from all over the world.
