The M.Mus. degree program in performance is offered for students who wish to further their studies in piano, organ, strings, wind instruments, percussion, or voice. In addition to private lesson study and ensemble performance, all graduate students are required to complete a core sequence of courses in research and music theory as well as a required selection of coursework in music history, pedagogy, and applied music that is specific to the area of study. Two recitals are required (2 credits), typically with one completed in each year of study. Convocation attendance and ensemble participation are required for all full-time graduate students. Graduate students are required to complete 36 graduate credits beyond the baccalaureate and normally four semesters in residence.
The program promotes the attainment of high levels of performance and a solid grasp of general musical knowledge as demonstrated by a two-part terminal project for the performance degree in which the candidate performs in two major public appearances. One is a solo recital; the second may be another solo recital, an ensemble recital, a performance of a major concerto with orchestra, or a lecture recital on a subject relevant to the student’s major instrument. Written and oral comprehensive examinations must be completed during the final semester.
