MM - Performance Concentration

Additional Requirements for Admission

Admission to the MM program in performance requires a performance background, with a Bachelor of Music degree in the performance area of specialization or the equivalent of the BM. Background deficiencies must be satisfied before admission to candidacy. All performance degree candidates must complete a satisfactory audition in their performance area of specialization. The audition should be completed as early as possible—but no later than the end of the first semester of enrollment. Permission to pursue the degree emphasis is tentative pending approval of the respective performance faculty.

Degree Requirements

A formal graduate recital, in lieu of a thesis, must be presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the MM degree with emphasis in performance. In order to receive permission to schedule a degree recital, students must satisfy the expectations of the respective performance area. Recital permission must be obtained no later than the semester before the semester in which the recital is to be performed. The student’s performance repertoire and the recital program must be in accordance with the guidelines and expectations established by the respective performance area.

Students studying for the MM degree with emphasis in performance should plan to be in residence during at least one fall or spring semester, since continuous study opportunities may not exist in summer session.

The Master of Music Performance degree requires 32 credit hours, and offers emphases in organ, piano, strings/winds/percussion, and voice.
