Performer's Certificate Program - Graduate

The Performer's Certificate is a one-year program designed for highly talented and motivated young musicians seeking intensive music study. Completion of the program requires six credits per semester. Due to the intensive amount of weekly practicing and rehearsing involved, students in this program will be considered by the University to be full-time students. The tuition fees will be calculated according to “In-state Graduate” tuition. In generic form, this program contains sixteen hours of principal private study, and eight hours of chamber music and/or large-ensemble participation.

Students must have a baccalaureate degree or equivalent from an accredited institution. Credits from previous study may not be substituted or transferred into the Performer Certificate program.
