The Master of Arts in Music: Instrumental Concentration prepare you for a career in the performing arts by focused study in advanced music performance, ensembles, recitals, and studio performance opportunities. In addition to specific courses for the different concentrations that include applied study and ensemble work, a core curriculum of research, music theory, and music history courses serve to develop an understanding of music and its cultural implications beyond the student’s chosen major. The concentrations prepare students to enter the professional performance world as performers and teachers, or for continued study at the doctoral level.
The degree culminates in a Graduate Performance Project, as well a recital analysis on the history, structure, performance practice, and teaching strategies on the music presented.
