Curriculum: Voice Postgraduate Students

Life isn’t an audition.

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.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Vocal Performance is a one-year program that provides exceptionally talented students who have already completed a master's degree (or the equivalent) the opportunity to continue their professional studies. All ensemble classes are available by audition, but placement is not guaranteed.

Postgraduate students, at the discretion of the voice faculty, may be required to perform a piece chosen by the voice faculty at the end of the first semester for evaluation. During the second semester the postgraduate student must perform a recital, the requirements for which are the same as for the Master of Music degree but at a more advanced level appropriate to postgraduate studies. Evaluation and jury requirements are also the same as the Master of Music degree.
