Our master of music (M.M.) degree programs in the performance areas of organ, percussion, piano, strings, voice, and wind instruments promote the attainment of high levels of performance in addition to the skills necessary to enter the professional music world.
The piano program offers two emphases: collaborative arts, which gives in-depth training in all aspects of chamber music and accompaniment; and performance, which provides concentrated studies in repertoire and technique.
Personal attention from a stellar faculty within an intimate, friendly environment is a key component of the performance programs. They will not only help you grow musically, but also encourage you to think proactively and critically. They are an invaluable resource as you prepare for your professional career.
Graduates of our programs have gone on to careers as soloists, accompanists, members of major orchestras and opera companies, and pedagogs in private studios and academia.
Application deadline: February 1 for fall admission (January 1 if you are applying for a McNair Graduate Fellowship or a University African American Fellowship). Performance currently does not offer spring admission.
