Artist Diploma

The Artist Diploma is an extremely selective program for students who wish to study their craft at the highest level. It is a two-year program for students who already hold a master’s degree.

For orchestral instrumentalists, the course load per semester typically includes lessons, Seminar in the Major, chamber music, and orchestra, and at least one elective.

During each year of residence in the Artist Diploma program, students present a public degree recital, one major ensemble performance, and one performance of a work composed for soloist and orchestra.
