The master of music (M.M.) degree in voice pedagogy is designed to meet the needs of the student who has an undergraduate degree in music with voice as the main instrument and who desires to pursue a career as a voice instructor, either in an academic setting or a private one.
This degree will help you develop into a knowledgeable teacher of singing, offering an intensive curriculum in voice pedagogy, voice science, pedagogical issues, repertoire, diction, career planning methods, voice study, performance, and experience in teaching. In addition, you will have access to the most current voice science laboratory equipment in collaboration with the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, part of the College of Arts & Sciences at Syracuse University. With performance training incorporated into the program, you have a variety of options upon completion of the degree. You can go on to teach voice, diction, opera directing, or even pursue a doctor of musical arts (D.M.A.) degree in voice.
Application deadline: February 1 for fall admission (January 1 if you are applying for a McNair Graduate Fellowship or a University African American Fellowship). Voice pedagogy currently does not offer spring admission.
