Where artistry and innovation share center stage

Graduate Programs

The School of Music offers a Master of Music degree (in instrumental performance, keyboard performance, vocal performance, composition, or collaborative piano), a Master of Music in Music Education, and a Master of Science degree in Music & Technology.

In addition the School of Music houses a Music Entrepreneurship program with the goal to empower every music student with the skills and mindset to succeed in the professional world. We treat entrepreneurship as an attitude that infuses every subject from bios to business and beyond. The elective courses we offer are designed to compliment the graduate degrees that the School of Music offers. Our hands-on approach places your career goals at the forefront and transforms everyday life—recitals, auditions, ideas—into a laboratory for applying and testing new skills.
