The two-year post-baccalaureate Artist's Diploma degree is a unique conservatory inspired program, focused on developing both the artistry and professionalism of gifted young musicians. Except in unusual and compelling circumstances, the Artist's Diploma is limited to areas of performance with substantial and significant solo and chamber repertoire. Candidates for the diploma possess not only great talent, but also the ability and determination to realize that talent in the contemporary musical world. They may have already embarked on solo performing careers, or may be on the brink of such careers.
This program is tailored to each student's individual needs. Working in close collaboration with studio faculty and advisors, including Artists-in-Residence Shanghai Quartet, Artist's Diploma students focus on performance, deepening their artistry in close collaboration with master teachers. In addition, some will want to enhance their education through studies of music theory, languages, and so forth, while others will want to begin practical preparations for careers to which their talents have led.
