They acquire applied skills in research and performance for meaningful and effective use of this knowledge.
Applicants must meet the requirements established by the Graduate School and complete its admission process.† Applicants must have the equivalent of a bachelor of music degree from an accredited institution, a minimum average grade of B on all previous music course work, and demonstrate an acceptable level of musical accomplishment through an audition.
