Artist Music Diploma Program

The Artist Music Diploma program is designed for individuals who have earned a Bachelor of Music Degree and who are preparing for a performance career. Emphasis is placed on private lessons, master classes, practice, ensemble experiences, and preparation for professional auditions. Applicants are recommended to have finished a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent and have an extraordinary level of performance skills. Applicants will be required to perform an audition. Candidates for the Artist Diploma are expected to complete at least two years in residence, during which time course work will include private study, ensemble participation, and presentation of two full solo recitals. The maximum time allotted for completion of all requirements is normally three consecutive years from the date of initial enrollment.

Students can choose to concentrate on an Orchestral Instrument, Piano, Voice, or Composition.  The ensemble will match your concentration area.
