Any music school can make you a better player. Our interconnected courses are built to transform you intellectually, artistically, professionally, and individually. You’ll understand the roots of your music, freeing you to take it somewhere new. You’ll see how your training broadens your options, rather than narrowing them. You'll find your voice. And you'll enter the world with the same confidence you bring to the stage.

A one-year professional studies diploma is available in historical keyboards (harpsichord/fortepiano), baroque violin, baroque viola, baroque cello, and historical plucked strings (guitar/lute). Available to students with a completed bachelor’s degree.
