An independent department within the Hochschule is the Ballet Academy, adding a further dimension to the possibilities for music theatre performance. A program in Alexander technique is available. In 2008 the former Richard Strauss Konservatory in Munich was incorporated into the Hochschule. There is close co-operation with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. The University houses an electronic music studio, an Institute of Musicology, an Institute of Music Education, an Academy for New Music and an Early Music Studio.
